Abstract

A calcite/barium fluoride polarizing prism gives improved ultraviolet transmittance compared with a calcite/calcite ultraviolet polarizing prism. Beam spatial distortion is transmitted because of variations in absorption (and path length) in the calcite half of the calcite/barium fluoride prism.
