About the 525 nm Wave Rotator Plate 90° with Brass Mount
The 525 nm Polarization Rotator Plate 90° with Brass Mount provides a cost-effective alternative to polarization half waveplates. This product efficiently rotates the axis of polarization by 90° (half wave) specifically for the 525 nm wavelength. It is commonly used in conjunction with a Polarizing Beamsplitter (PBS) cube to combine collimated beams at the same wavelength, enabling power scaling while maintaining the beam's optical properties. Unlike in traditional half waveplate retarders, the rotation of polarization is independent of the rotator's angle around the z-axis (light propagation axis), simplifying alignment.
While the design wavelength is 525 nm, this product exhibits minimal loss of efficiency over a broader range of 515 nm to 532 nm. The rotator plate boasts dimensions of 10 x 10 mm, making it suitable for large or multiple beams adjoined by "knife edging". The brass mount has 2 x M3 threads located at the bottom. The distance between holes is 8 mm.
