Frequently Asked Questions

The separation angle of the Wollaston polarizer exhibits chromatic dispersion and any separation angle can be designed upon the requirement. The separation angle of standard products vs wavelength is shown in the plot in the datasheet.

A Wollaston polarizer is an instrument that separates an incident beam into two rays: extraordinary and ordinary ray with a deviation angle which is dependent on wavelength.

The Wollaston polarizer is made of two birefringent material prisms that are cemented together. The materials used are a-BBO, Calcite, YVO4 or Quartz.

The Wollaston polarizer is suitable for low power applications and has a wide wavelength range.

The damage threshold of the Wollaston polarizer is greater than 500MW/cm2.
