Optical Polarizer Type
   Polarizer Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Calcite Polarizer       Calcite polarizers are crystals used to separate unpolarized light into two separate plane polarized beams. 
   Circular Polarizer       Circular polarizers block all photons rotating in one direction, while allowing those rotating in the opposite direction to pass.  Circular polarizers are assemblies that consist of a linear polarizer and a wave retarder, usually a quarter or half waveplate. 
   Depolarizer       Depolarizers obliterate the polarization of a polarized beam by reflecting the beam in all directions at right angles to its axis. 
   Linear Polarizer       Linear polarizers transmit light waves along one axis and absorb them along the other. The transmitting and absorbing axes of linear polarization are oriented at 90 degrees to each other. 
   Polarization Rotator       Polarization rotators maneuver incident-linearly-polarized light about an optical axis. 
   Waveplate / Retardation Plate       Waveplates, sometimes known as retardation plates, are optical elements with two principal axes - one slow and one fast - which resolve an incident polarized beam into two mutually perpendicular polarized beams. The emerging beam recombines to form a particular single polarized beam. 
   Other       Any other polarizer type not listed.

   Visible       Polarizers that are designed for use in the 380 nm to 750 nm wavelength range. 
   Ultraviolet       Polarizers that are designed for use in the 4 nm to 380 nm wavelength range. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Wavelength Range:       The wavelength range the depolarizer was designed to operate it. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Clear Aperture       This is the clear aperture of retardation plates. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Extinction Ratio:       Excitation ratio refers to the ratio of the power of a plane-polarized beam that is transmitted through a polarizer placed in its path with its polarizing axis parallel to the beam's plane, as compared with the transmitted power when the polarizer's axis is perpendicular to the beam's plane. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Transmittance:       Transmittance is the ratio of the radiant power transmitted by a polarizer to the incident radiant power. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Beam Deviation:       The deviation of the polarized beam from normal. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Operating Temperature:       The temperature range in which the device is designed to operate. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
