High-Precision Beamsplitters
Feb 2007
Agilent Technologies Inc.Request Info
Agilent Technologies’ high-performance beamsplitter line offers industry-leading polarization control, beam control and low wavefront distortion. The precision beamsplitters split light by polarization, amplitude or wavelength and are available in cube, plate or displacement geometries.

In both standard and custom models, Agilent beamsplitters offer a variety of choices to meet current and emerging applications in aerospace and defense, homeland security, biotechnology, scientific instrumentation and nanotechnology measurement.

All Agilent beamsplitters offer near-distortionless beam splitting with the option for parallel or orthogonal output. They provide exceptional eighth-wave to tenth-wave transmitted wavefront distortion (TWD) in both output beams.

Agilent said its displacement beamsplitters accurately split an input beam into two or more displaced output beams with industry-leading parallelism, accurate to 25 arcseconds. Its cube beamsplitters are designed to accurately separate an input beam into two beams exiting at a 90-degree angle to each other. Its plate beamsplitters offer compact size and low thermal mass with lower wavefront distortion and arcsecond wedge tolerance that ensures a precise 90-degree separation between the output beams. Agilent’s polarization beamsplitters offer a 1,000:1 contrast ratio in both transmitted and reflected beams.

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...
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
With respect to light radiation, the restriction of the vibrations of the magnetic or electric field vector to a single plane. In a beam of electromagnetic radiation, the polarization direction is the direction of the electric field vector (with no distinction between positive and negative as the field oscillates back and forth). The polarization vector is always in the plane at right angles to the beam direction. Near some given stationary point in space the polarization direction in the beam...
