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
