Lambda Research Optics Inc.Request Info
Lambda Research Optics is the one-stop provider for all of your beamsplitter and wave plate needs.

With products covering from the UV to the near-IR (248 to ~2940 nm), we offer polarizing and nonpolarizing beamsplitter cubes and plates, and wave plates.

Beamsplitters and polarizing optics include polarizing beamsplitter cubes and plates (laser line, broadband); nonpolarizing beamsplitter cubes and plates (laser line, broadband, hybrid); high-power UV polarizing cubes (optically contacted); high-power polarizing cubes for YAG and harmonic (optically contacted); optical isolator cubes; and calcite polarizers.

Wave plates are offered in various retardations, including true first order, zero order and multiple order. The standard (off-the-shelf ) or custom sizes and wavelengths are available to meet your specifications.

With our in-house capability, we provide services from fabrication to coating to assembly. Our goal is to provide high-quality, high-performance optics.

An optical device for dividing a beam into two or more separate beams. A simple beamsplitter may be a very thin sheet of glass inserted in the beam at an angle to divert a portion of the beam in a different direction. A more sophisticated type consists of two right-angle prisms cemented together at their hypotenuse faces. The cemented face of one prism is coated, before cementing, with a metallic or dielectric layer having the desired reflecting properties, both in the percentage of reflection...
Indicating a capability to deal with a relatively wide spectral bandwidth.
wave plate
An optical element having two principal axes, slow and fast, that resolve an incident polarized beam into two mutually perpendicular polarized beams. The emerging beam recombines to form a particular single polarized beam. Wave plates produce full-, half- and quarter- wave retardations. Also known as retardation plate.
