Mid-IR Polariser, Broadband, KRS-5, 2-35µm

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Altechna


Description :

KRS-5 is a broadband 2-35µm Mid-IR polarizers produced by holographic method (i.e. laser interferometry). These polarisers do not suffer from beam displacement, are not affected by diverging or converging beam, have wide acceptance angle without degradation of performance.
