Cube Beamsplitters target uncollimated light sources.

October 10, 2014

With wire grid polarizer cemented between 2 right angle prisms made of N-BK7 substrate, Wire Grid Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters are designed for applications using uncollimated light, including broadband white light sources. Anti-reflection coating is applied to each face of beamsplitter, which provides less than 0.5% average reflection per surface. Maintaining spectral contrast from 400–700 nm over cone angle of +25°, beamsplitters provide greater than 75% transmission of P-polarized light. Read More

Telecentric Measuring Lenses offer in-line illumination.

September 30, 2014

Available in 0.5, 0.75, and 2.0 X primary magnifications, ECHSPEC® Silver Series is optimized for both on-line and off-line machine vision production environments that require accurate measurements. Double telecentric lenses correct perspective errors that yield magnification variations through depth of field. Units feature non-focusing mechanical design with lockable, adjustable iris control. With in-line illumination port, lenses are suited for inspection of specular and semi-specular parts. Read More

Radial Polarization Converters reduce laser beam spot size.

September 4, 2014

Radial Polarization Converters, manufactured from UV fused silica substrate, are S-waveplates that convert linear polarization to radial or azimuthal polarization. Able to be used to create optical vortex or doughnut beam, products produce radially polarized light, feature 5 mm apertures, and come in 632, 800, and 1,030 nm wavelength models with 25.4 mm OD. Other features include damage thresholds of 20 J/cm² at 3.5 ns and 1,064 nm, 20-10 surface quality, and 1/8 λ surface accuracy. Read More

Slow Axis Collimators work with laser bars.

August 20, 2014

Consisting of monolithic array of cylindrical lenses that are designed to collimate individual emitters of laser bar, Slow Axis Collimators provide numerical aperture of 0.05, surface accuracy of λ/4, and low curvature deviation. RoHS-compliant units feature standard AR coating for 790–990 nm and provide greater than 99% transmission. Measuring 12 mm long x 1.50 mm high, collimators come in 50, 100, and 150 µm sizes, all with 500 µm pitch. Read More

Light Absorbent Foil eliminates light reflectance.

August 1, 2014

With spectral absorbance of 99.99% and wide band performance from UV to IR, Acktar Light Absorbent Foil eliminates light reflectance in applications where direct coating of parts is not practical, including optical packaging, laser devices, infrared systems, or passive thermal control. Available in pre-cut patterns or large sheets up to 200 x 600 mm, RoHS-compliant foil is compatible with Class 1 cleanrooms and has adhesive back for mounting to wide range of surfaces. Read More
