Beamsplitters feature multi-layer, anti-reflection coating.

Elliptical-shaped Plate Beamsplitters fit into circular apertures when oriented or mounted at 45°. They have 50% transmission/50% reflection ratio and are offered for visible spectrum and near-infrared in variety of sizes. Surface accuracy of Â-¼ wave reduces scatter and makes them suitable for imaging applications requiring diffuse axial or in-line illumination sources.

Collimators/Focusers focus light exiting optical fiber.

Assemblies provide collimated beam of desired diameter or focus light to one spot. Antireflection-coated lenses are diffraction-limited and are capable of achieving spot sizes as small as a few microns in diameter. Products may be used in pairs to couple input and output light of optical devices and are available in three wavelength ranges: 350-600, 600-1050, and 1050-1600 nm. Effective focal...
