Hi there,


I have created a standard beam splitting cube in non-sequential mode using two Prism90 polygons, with surface coatings of I.99 and I.50.


I am now interested in making a polarizing beam splitter. What is the best way to go about this in a non-sequential mode?


Thank you so much!

Hi Martin,


You can use a coating to pass or reflect specific polarizations.


Check out the ''IDEAL2'' coating:

 



 

Thanks for the quick reply Thomas!


I do not have this IDEAL2 coating. Can you suggest where I may find it?


EDIT: I have found the IDEAL2 by going into my Coating Tools -> Edit Coating File.

Yes, that's it!


You can edit your coating catalog to add, like I did with mine, a pass_p and a pass_s coatings.


Best,

Hi again, I found an old file where I did a x-cube polarization splitter!


Hi Thomas, am I able to contact you via email or phone call to continue this discussion? I have some specific questions on my PBS design.


Thanks!
