90211 - Broadband Polarization Rotation


Rotation of polarization is an essential task in the manipulation of light beams. The ability to accurately rotate between s-waves and p-waves is important for many optical apparatus. This becomes much more difficult to do with broad bandwidth light sources. 3DOptix suggests several mirror-based polarization rotation reference designs that allow accurate broadband polarization rotation of light. The reference designs include the 3DOptix building-blocks, which are based on the BreadBox™ platform with its modular and versatile optomechanical mounts and adaptors.

The following design is for optical elements of Ø1"/25mm. Other reference designs support Ø0.5”/12.5mm and their combinations.

With the following easy-to-use instruction manual and its associated instructional video, your apparatus will be ready to use in a snap, allowing you to focus on experimentation and not on alignment.
