Depolarizer Optical Polarizers Datasheets

Lyot Depolarizer
from Artifex Engineering

The optical depolarizer is a passive optical component which can transform the input polarized or partially polarized light into unpolarized light (depolarization). Our design uses the Lyot depolarizer principle. [See More]

Depolarizers -- DPL Series
from CVI Laser Optics

The DPL depolarizer consists of optically contacted 3 ° wedges of crystal quartz and fused silica. This inherently high damage threshold optic operates by imparting a variable phase shift across the beam aperture. At 488 nm, this phase variation is 1 wave per millimeter. Thus by using an...
