Broadband Polarizing Plate Beamsplitters consist of a thin layer of aluminum MicroWires adhered to a glass window. These beamsplitters are an alternative and economical substitute for ruled or holographic wire grid polarizers. Providing exceptional image contrast and uniformity, these beamsplitters are ideal for applications requiring large angular apertures and high throughput.
Note: MicroWires are very fragile. Handle these beamsplitters with care.
If the operating temperature will exceed 100°C, turn the MicroWires surface away from the input beam for optimum performance. At temperatures below 100°C, the MicroWires can be oriented towards the input beam.
