Artifex Engineering offers high quality polymer based wire grid polarizers for use in the visible and NIR. These are effectively very thin polarizing beamsplitters. We offer two types of material working from 425nm out to 1600nm with more than 1000:1 (30dB) extinction ratio over most of the bandwidth range.
And the bare sheet is only 80µm thin. Just imagine the possibilities !
Wire grid polarizers function by reflecting the rejected light, as opposed to absorption in dichroic sheet polarizers. Therefore the power handling capability of wire grid polarizers is higher. Also, the sheet substrate has been designed for high temperature application. This material is specified for use up to 105°C.
Suitable for low power applications
