Meadowlark Optics acquires ICE CubeTM product line from MOXTEK

Acquisition Expands Meadowlark’s Polarization Solutions Offerings

FREDERICK, CO - April 30, 2020 - Meadowlark Optics, Inc.(Meadowlark) today announced that it has acquired the wire-grid ICECubeTM polarizing beam splitting (PBS) cube product line from MOXTEK, Inc. (Moxtek). The acquired product line will enable Meadowlarkto expand on its existing wire-grid and polarization optics products

’This is a great addition to our family of polarizers,’ said Garry Gorsuch, President and CEO of Meadowlark Optics. ’We have been working with Moxtek for many years and their wire-grid polarizer technology is a perfect fit with our best-in-class polarization solutions business.’

Meadowlark has purchased the remaining ICECube stock from Moxtek and will continue to manufacture the PBS cube going forward. The ICE Cube polarizer performance exceeds that for the commonly used thin film MacNeille cubes in both acceptable wavelength range and angle of incidence range while providing more than twice the contrast ratio in the transmitted beam for most wavelengths. It is optimized for use over a wide range of acceptance angles while maintaining color uniformity and image contrast in the visible and IR wavelength spectrums. The cube allows compact optical designs with reduced optical paths. Engineers are now able to design smaller systems while maintaining excellent optical performance.

Shaun Ogden of Moxtek stated,"We are excited to hand this product over to Meadowlark who is a trusted leader in optical assembly and polarization solutions. We know Meadowlark Optics will handle this product with the respect it deserves.
