For Space-Constrained ApplicationsBARRINGTON, N.J., Aug. 15, 2007 -- TechSpec elliptical plate beamsplitters are designed to maximize beamsplitting efficiency while minimizing valuable mounting space, said the product's maker, Edmund Optics Inc.
When the beamsplitter is orientated at 45º in the optical path, it creates a circular aperture equal to the diameter of the minor axis. The beamsplitters are available in two thicknesses: 1 mm for ultratight spaces, or 3 mm with an improved surface accuracy of 1/4. They are available in both visible and near-infrared 50/50 beamsplitter coatings and feature a high efficiency multilayer antireflection coating to reduce back reflections.
"Our elliptical plate beamsplitters have been used in a number of space-constrained applications. They provide 40 percent more clear aperture than would a circular beamsplitter using the same amount of physical space, which has helped us design some compact, highly efficient illumination assemblies," said Gregg Fales, Edmund Optics product line manager.
A complete range of elliptical plate beamsplitters is in-stock and ready to ship at prices from $90, the company said. RoHS compliance certificates are available for many models.
