Variable attenuators operate only for linearly polarized laser beams.
Continuously variable attenuators /beamsplitters are comprised of 2 high performance optical components - multiple order half-wave waveplate and cube polarizing beamsplitter or achromatic air-spaced waveplate and Glan-Taylor laser polarizing prism. Available for different laser wavelengths.
We also offer variable attenuators for high power Nd:YAG laser or femtosecond Ti:Sapphire laser applications. It has multiple order or zero order optically contacted, or air-spaced waveplate and thin film laser polarizer.
