Beamsplitters are normally used to split or combine beam of light. The shapes that are in common use provided by Honour Optics are plates and cubes. Plates are better to use for most laser applications as they exhibit low absorption. Cubes are a convenient, protected form for low power applications. The performances of beamsplitters mainly depend on the coatings. When choosing beamsplitters, forms, coating, transmission, and damage threshold should be considered.
Polarizers are kind of optical filters widely used for hot spots or glare reductions, stress evaluations and contrast enhancement in imaging applications. Polarizers also perform different measurements in acoustic vibrations, molecular structures, change in magnetic fields, chemical interactions and temperature. The light transmission that passes through a polarizer depends strongly on the direction of the polarization.

For maximum power handling, we recommend optically contacted cubes or plate beamsplitters. For durability and handling, cube beamsplitters should work better. Honour Optics offers both plate and cube beamsplitter.
Plate beamsplitters display intrinsically higher beam power handling capability than cube beamsplitters. Plate varieties are preferred in high laser energy applications, or where cost or weight limits on the assembly come into play. They are typically designed to work at 45° angles, though other angles can often be specified. Plate beamsplitter normally with an anti-reflection (AR) coated the second surface to enhance each beamsplitter’s overall efficiency and to prevent unwanted ghost reflections.
Honour Optics also offer Standard Cube Beamsplitters was constructed by cementing two right angle prisms together, Standard Cube Beamsplitters offer a range of reflection/transmission ratios. An interference coating has been applied to the hypotenuse surface of one of the prisms to provide the designated reflection/transmission ratio. Absorption loss to the coating is minimal. We offer cemented, optical contacted and air spaced cubes according to the applications.
Infrared (IR) Beamsplitters
Infrared beamsplitters are most designed for broadband infrared applications; Standard infrared (IR) Beamsplitters offer a 50% reflection and 50% transmission ratio. Honour Optics offers customizes beamsplitters in multiple sizes and with different materials. IR CaF2 beamsplitters offer excellent performance in the 2 - 8μm range. The chemical vapor deposition laser quality ZnSe beamsplitters offer excellent performance in the 7 - 14μm wavelength range.
Ultraviolet (UV) Beamsplitters
UV Beamsplitters offer optimum performance in the UV spectral range and feature low absorption and negligible ghost reflections. The precision fused silica normally be used to minimize the additional optical path length a beamsplitter adds to an imaging or photonic system.

Polarizers divide a beam of light into two highly polarized beams, making them ideal for isolation or routing of a specific polarization. Extinction ratio and power handling are important factors to consider when choosing a polarizer, particularly for laser applications. Honour Optics offers plate and cube polarizer.
Plate polarizers have unique characteristics with its ultra-durable hard coatings, high damage thresholds, and wide acceptance angles. It is placed on accurate fused silica substrates. Thin film polarizers have easy alignment without angle-tuning. Its transmission and reflection have damage thresholds up to 10 J/cm3. These polarizers transmit P-polarized light while reflecting its S-polarized light.
This type of polarizer is ideal for extra-cavity and intracavity high powered applications. When using for infrared (IR), it requires cautious control of all characteristics of components production. Careful polishing and coating are required for an exceptional extinction ratio, greater wavefront performance, high laser mutilation resistance, and ultra-low loss.
Cube Polarizers are useful for different applications that require simplified mounting or system integration and durability. It is mostly used in photonics instrumentation or semiconductor in transmitting P-polarized light while reflecting S-polarized light. These are available in different wavelength ranges and common laser wavelengths. The typical design is between 0° and 45° angle of incidence with separation of the beams at 90°. Any split between transmission and reflection can be designed depending on the configuration.

Standard Beamsplitters, which split incident light by a specified ratio that is independent of wavelength or polarization state, are ideal for illumination subassemblies or as one-way mirrors. Dichroic Beamsplitters, which split light by wavelength, are often used as laser beam combiners or as broadband hot or cold mirrors. Non-Polarizing Beamsplitters, ideal for laser beam manipulation, split light by overall intensity. Polarizing Beamsplitters, often used in photonics instrumentation, split light by polarization state. Honour Optics’ anti-reflection coatings are designed for the Ultraviolet (UV), Visible, or Infrared (IR).
Beamsplitters are common components in laser or illumination systems. Beamsplitters are also ideal for fluorescence applications, optical interferometry, or life science or semiconductor instrumentation. Light can be split by percentage of overall intensity, wavelength, or polarization state.
Polarizers are used in imaging applications to reduce glare or hot spots, enhance contrast, or to perform stress evaluations. Polarizers also can be used to measure changes in magnetic fields, temperature, molecular structures, chemical interactions, or acoustic vibrations. Polarizers are used to transmit a specific polarization state while blocking all others. Polarized light can have linear, circular, or elliptical polarization.
