Glan-Laser Polarizer


  • Broadband Performance from 220 – 2200nm
  • High Extinction Ratios up to 200 000:1
  • High Laser Damage Thresholds up to > 500 MW/cm2

Glan-Type Polarizers are mounted, polarizing prisms used in applications that require broad spectral ranges, high extinction ratios, or high polarization purities. Glan-Taylor Polarizers are medium-power, air-spaced UV to NIR polarizers that transmit the extraordinary beam. The ordinary beam is then reflected and absorbed by black glass plates that have been cemented to the prism. Glan-Laser Polarizers are similar to Glan-Taylor, but are designed for higher power applications. Glan-Laser Polarizers utilize an advanced polishing technique for minimizing surface scatter and feature two escape windows for passing the high power rejected light. Glan-Thompson Polarizers are low power polarizers that are ideal for UV, visible, or NIR applications, feature a cemented design, and transmit the extraordinary beam while absorbing the reflected ordinary beam.
