45° incidence | Beamsplitter is designed to work at 45° incidence. | ||
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. | ||
Polarizing? | Beamsplitters can either be polarizing or nonpolarizing. | ||
Search Logic: | "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice. | ||
Plate Beamsplitter Geometry

Beamsplitter Shape: | Beamsplitters are available in circular, square, or rectangular configurations. | ||
Your choices are... | |||
Circular | The beamsplitter is circular shaped. | ||
Square | The beamsplitter is square shaped. | ||
Rectangular | The beamsplitter is rectangular shaped. | ||
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. | ||
Diameter, Square Side, or Rectangular Length: | If the beamsplitter is circular, the diameter. If the beamsplitter is square, the length of a side. If the beamsplitter is rectangular, the length of its longest side. | ||
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. | ||
Rectangular Width: | If the beamsplitter is rectangular, the length of its shorter side. | ||
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. | ||
Thickness: | The thickness of the beamsplitter. | ||
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. | ||
Wedged? | A slight wedge can virtually eliminate internal fringes. | ||
Search Logic: | "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice. | ||
Plate Beamsplitter Performance
Back to Top
Wavelength Range: | The wavelength range in which the beamsplitter is designed to function. | ||
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. | ||
Transmission: | The percent of incident light transmitted through the beamsplitter. | ||
Search Logic: | All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value. | ||
Beamsplitter Features
Back to Top
Coatings: | Beamsplitters can have coatings to enhance performance. | ||
Your choices are... | |||
None | The beamsplitter has no coating. | ||
Dielectric Coating | The beamsplitter has a dielectric coating. | ||
Antireflection Coating | The beamsplitter has an antireflection coating. | ||
Search Logic: | Products with the selected attribute will be returned as matches. Leaving or selecting "No Preference" will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches. | ||
