Linear Polarizers

Ultraviolet Polarizers


BVO UV – UV / Visible linear polarizer working from 320-760nm. BVO ultraviolet (UV) provides a cost competitive UV solution to OEM manufacturers compared to expensive glass polarizers. Can withstand lower damage threshold input light sources.

Visible Polarizers


BVO UHC – 42% transmission while delivering high contrast. BVO UHC is a classic high transmission linear polarizer covering all applications for visible light, 400-700nm.

BVO Wire Grid (WG) – New wire grid film maximizing bandwidth, high durability and a low cost alternative to glass WG polarizers. A hybrid reflective polarizer covers the visible and NIR bandwidth, 400-1600nm. Works at both 0˚ angle of incidences and 45˚ as a beamsplitter. Key strengths are larger size, 80 micron thickness, high contrast and imaging capable.

BVO 38 – 38% transmission replacement polarizer for legacy systems. Many older optical drawings call for the original HN 38 from Polaroid. BVO 38 is the perfect replacement polarizer designed for the 400-700nm band.

BVO 125 – A tough dye stuff polarizer for the rugged market. BVO 125 linear polarizer is more resistant to optical power damage, high temperatures or blue LED’s large energy flux. Covers 410-675nm band.

BVO 244 – 45% ultra transmission polarizer for applications tolerant of lower contrast. Great for multiple stage applications requiring a minimum amount of loss. Covers 400-700nm.

BVO Colored Polarizers – RGB dye stuff polarizers for color channel specific applications. Includes higher durability pressure sensitive adhesive to withstand projection environments. Also useful for tunable filter designs. Call for custom order.

Near Infrared Polarizers


BVO IR – The flagship infrared polarizer is a NIR broadband dichroic linear polarizer covering 700-1700nm. Excels in NIR imaging, LED light sources, solid state detectors and all IR camera applications.

BVO Wire Grid (WG) – New wire grid film maximizing bandwidth, high durability and a low cost alternative to glass WG polarizers. A hybrid reflective polarizer which covers the visible and NIR bandwidth, 400-1600nm. Works at both 0˚ angle of incidences and 45˚ as a beamsplitter. Key strengths are larger size, 80 micron thickness, high contrast and imaging capable.

BVO NIR diode – Most inexpensive NIR polarizer on the market. Covers both visible and NIR bandwidth, 450-1000nm. Has scatter but works great for LED light banks or sensors and available in large sizes.

BVO 777 – A Visible / NIR hybrid polarizer providing great value for those needing high contrast up to 780nm. Is imaging capable and very affordable.

BVO 1000 – An ultra broadband hybrid linear polarizer covers the entire visible and NIR bandwidth. System designers can use one polarizer to cover a 400-1600nm bandwidth for Visible / NIR applications eliminating multiple polarizers.
