THz Polarizers:
  • Polarization Rotator »

      The Polarization Rotator is a wire grid polarizer combined with a mounted mirror placed at an adjustable distance behind the polarizer. It is designed to take an incoming linearly polarized signal and adjust the polarization elliptically.

  • New Product! Thin Film Polarizers »

      Thin Film Terahertz Polarizers are designed for applications in the 0.1-3.0 THz range. The polarizers consist of any array of metal stripes fabricated on a polymer membrane using an ultrafast laser micromachining technique. Typical stripe widthand spacing are about 15um. THz thin film polarizers provide performance comparable to free-standing wire grids, such as G25S and G30S, made of 10um wires spaced by 25um and 30um respectively.

      The main advantage of thin film THz polarizers is significantly larger clear aperture - up to 85mm in diameter. For comparison, the G25S and G30S free-standing wire grid polarizers are only available with clear apertures of 40mm.

  • Polarizer Holders »

      We carry two types of rotating holders for the wire grid polarizers or thin film polarizers.

      Model RH1 is designed for 4" diameter polarizers, and enables a 360° rotation.

      Model RH2 is designed for 4" diameter polarizers, and enables 2-axis adjustments and 360° rotation.

THz Attenuators & Pass Filters:
  • THz Attenuators »

      The attenuator set is ideal for applications where the terahertz signal needs to be attenuated to prevent detector saturation.

      Additionally; the broad, flat transmission spectrum shown in figure 1 below makes this set good for both broad spectrum THz and BWO scanning applications. Whether the source is a photoconductive antenna, free electron laser, or backwards wave oscillator this attenuator set with its sputter coated thin film elements is capable of attenuating the signal uniformly.

      The set consists of 4 thin film attenuators mounted for easy and rapid deployment. The external diameter of the attenuators are 68mm, and the clear aperture is 60mm. These attenuators may be used as single attenuators or in combination as needed giving additional flexibility and range. The four attenuators are 30%, 10%, 3%, and 1% transmission. The attenuation combinations possible are given in the table below.

  • THz Low Pass Filters »

      Our new terahertz (THz) low pass filter is constructed from a micro-structured material that blocks the visible through mid IR while passing THz beams. It is an excellent filter for optical THz generation systems such as time domain THz spectroscopy systems. It has optimal characteristics for use in zinc telluride based systems and for typical photo conductive switch systems as well. As can be seen in the figure below, the measured transmission in the 700 to 850 nm range is below .01%. At wavelengths longer than 975 nm the transmission is below .1%. These measurements were done with a laser beam spectrally filtered to the wavelength of interest from a super-continuum white light coherent source.

      THz Low Pass Filter Visible To Mid IR Transmission Spectrum
      Attenuator Transmissions
      The transmission of THz waves is above 80% across the .1 to 3 THz range making this an excellent filter even for broadband THz applications. THz measurements were done up to 1 THz with our compact THz spectrometer (TScan-1000) and with additional optical THz generation for the above 1 THz range.

      This can be seen in the figure below.

      This filter is sold mounted in a 2" diameter holder as shown in the photo above. The clear aperture of the filter is 43 mm

  • New Product! Band-Pass Filters »

      Band-Pass filters allow for the selection of narrow bands in the frequency ranges of 0.1-1.2 THz. These filters utilize multilayer frequency selective surfaces to achieve a desired frequency response. The allowed bandwidth varies with center frequency, from 10 GHz to 200 GHz.
