Laser Beamsplitters are used to separate a single laser beam into two separate beams in a number of laser applications. Laser Beamsplitters are designed to reflect a certain portion of a laser beam, generally a particular wavelength or polarization state, while allowing the rest of the light to be transmitted. Laser Beamsplitters are available in several different types including Plate Beamsplitters, Cube Beamsplitters, or Lateral Displacement Beamsplitters. Dichroic Beamsplitters are also available for Raman spectroscopy applications.
Edmund Optics offers a wide range of Laser Beamsplitters for many beam manipulation needs. Plate Beamsplitters are beamsplitters that are aligned at a particular angle to achieve maximum reflection of a given set of wavelengths. Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters use a fused pair of right angle prisms to separate randomly polarized laser beams. Lateral Displacement Beamsplitters consist of a fused rhomboid prism and a right angle prism to split a laser beam into two separate but parallel beams.
