Cube Wire Grid Polarizing Beam Splitter (WGF™ PBS)

Polarizing Beam Splitter using WGF™

Wire grid polarizing beam splitter cube type (WGF™ PBS) using Asahi Kasei WGF™. A customizable wire grid polarizing beam splitter that features low angle of incidence dependence and is available in visible and infrared. (Standard products available)


・Maintains stable optical performance with little dependence on incident angle
・The color and degree of polarization do not change even when reduced, improving the accuracy of image inspection.
・If you are already using a half mirror, you can expect brightness to improve by replacing it with WGF™ PBS.
