Abstract

A novel, wide spectral range, low-loss polarizing prism based on the bireflectance (double-reflection) phenomenon in birefringent crystals is demonstrated. The bireflectant polarization prism is useful especially for polarizing a collimated beam in systems where large-aperture, large-acceptance angle, or high-radiation damage threshold are essential.
