UV-Vis Polarizers

PIKE Technologies offers Glan-Taylor and Glan-Thompson UV-Vis polarizers, providing advantage of the birefringent properties of UV-quality calcite. An air interface is assembled between two right angle calcite prisms in the Glan-Taylor polarizer whereas a UV-transparent cement separates the calcite prisms in the Glan-Thompson polarizer. In both styles, the polarized extraordinary ray passes through both prisms and the ordinary ray is internally reflected and absorbed.

  • High grade calcite
  • High extinction ratio
  • Manual versions – 1 degree settable scaling
  • Automated version – 0.1 degree scaling resolution
  • Fit in standard 2 inch x 3 inch mounts
