Deep Ultraviolet PolarizerKey Features
- Works between 245 to 285 nm
- Wire grid polarizer
- High damage threshold
- Transmission of greater than 50%
- Contrast ratio of greater than 50:1
Meadowlark Optics is pleased to present its new Deep Ultraviolet (UV) polarizer. Manufactured for wavelengths between 245 and 285 nm, this polarizer is ideal for applications requiring ultraviolet light around 266 nm. Additionally, this polarizer is transparent in the visible range, allowing visible light to easily pass through the polarizer. Deep UV Polarizers are manufactured out of dielectric nanowire arrays as thin as 10 nm. By using a dielectric instead of a metal as the basis of the wire grid, the non-metallic structures allow for a high laser damage threshold and removes the concerns of the wire grid oxidizing or causing contamination. Furthermore these parts are manufactured on large substrates, allowing for easy customization of sizes and shapes.
