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.
