Proper material selection and bonding techniques (for prism cubes) is vital for the optimum performance and P/S separation of polarizing beamspitters. PC Optics specializes in polarizing optics for precision laser and broadband applications ranging from UV to IR (193nm to 3 µm). RMI manufactures Thin Film Plate Polarizers up to 12” and Polarizing Beam splitter Cubes up to 6” to fit your application.
For low power applications between 350 nm and 3 µm, we use a cementing process to bond the prisms. For high power applications between 193 nm and 3 µm, we will bond the prisms using a special optical contacting process which allows for the bonding of a coated surface to a glass surface without the use of cement. If your application requires a high extinction ratio polarizing optics, call PC Optics and let our experienced technical staff provide you with the optimum, cost effective solution.
