Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters offer 3000:1 extinction ratio.

Press Release Summary:




Offering alternative to Brewster windows, High Energy Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters provide typical damage threshold of 15 J/cm² at 1,064 nm, 10 ns, 20 Hz. Products are constructed by optically contacting UV fused silica right angle prisms, rather than cementing them. Available in 12.7 mm cube size for use with variety of Nd: YAG laser wavelengths, beamsplitters feature greater than 99.5% reflection of S-polarized light and more than 97% transmission of P-polarized light at design wavelength.



Original Press Release:



High Energy Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters Offer Greater Than 3000:1 Extinction Ratio



Optically Contacted to Provide High Damage Thresholds



Barrington, N.J. - Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces new High Energy Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters. These easy-to-mount UV fused silica polarizing cube beamsplitters provide an excellent alternative to Brewster windows.



Cube Beamsplitter



Optically contacted design for increased laser damage threshold

High Energy Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters provide a typical damage threshold of 15 J/cm2 at 1064 nm, 10 ns, 20 Hz. To maximize laser damage threshold, High Energy Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters are constructed by optically contacting UV Fused Silica Right Angle Prisms - rather than cementing them.   They are available in 12.7 mm cube size for use with a variety of common Nd: YAG laser wavelengths, including 355 nm, 532 nm and 1064 nm.



Greater than 97% Transmission of P-Polarized Light

High Energy Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters feature greater than 99.5% reflection of S-polarized light and more than 97% transmission of P-polarized light at the design wavelength. They offer 1/8λ surface accuracy for minimal wavefront distortion. High Energy Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters provide a high extinction ratio of greater than 3000:1. High Energy Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.
