Radial Polarization Converters

  • Converts Linear Polarization to Radial or Azimuthal
  • Can be Used to Create an Optical Vortex or Doughnut Beam
  • High Damage Thresholds of 20 J/cm@ 1064nm, 3.5ns

Radial Polarization Converters are S-waveplates designed to convert linear polarization to radial or azimuthal polarization in order to reduce laser beam spot size. Radial Polarization Converters are beneficial for a variety of applications, such as for improving the edge quality of machine structures by reducing inaccuracies caused by distortion or for drilling and cutting features with high aspect ratios. Additionally, radially polarized light is ideal for STED or two-photon excitation fluorescence microscopy, laser micromachining, and optical tweezing applications.
