Foster Polarizers

  • Wide acceptance angle
  • High polarization purity
  • Suitable for low power applications

The Foster polarizer is made of two calcite prisms cemented together. The output beams separate at an angle of 45°.

Although both beams are available for use, only the undisplaced beam is of the exceptionally high polarization purity generally associated with crystal polarizers. The 45° reflected beam has a much lower degree of polarization.

As with all of our optics, we will gladly provide these items custom designed to your particular requirements. As an alternative, we offer a selection of standard items as specified below.
