Glan Thompson Polarizer™

Our Glan-Thompson Polarizer has a wavelength range from 350 nm to 2300 nm. This Vis-NIR polarizer is recommended for low-to-medium power applications (up to 2W cw) requiring a large field of view and the highest degree of polarization purity.  The Glan-Thompson Polarizer is made from two calcite elements cemented together to form a prism.

This polarizer is ideal for removing interference fringes from transmission spectra recorded at Brewster's angle and for obtaining optimum sensitivity for specular reflection spectroscopy measurements.

The polarizer is supported in a fully rotable holder on a sample slide plate and is readily mounted in-line with other accessories.
