What is a Polarization Conversion System?
The PCS is a low cost, compact, monolithic component that polarizes up to 90% of incident light, allowing new levels of freedom in optical design and efficiency.
We make the worlds most compact and highest efficiency PCS.
How it Works
ImagineOptix PCS solutions use thin film polarizing beam splitters (ultra-efficient GPH films) to separate a single incident light beam into two beams with opposite circular polarizations. Our patented MTR film then converts one of those polarizations to match the other polarization. The output is up to an astounding 90% of light in the desired polarization state.
- No air gaps between elements
- Cross-section is along the long direction of the lenslets
- Diffraction occurs within the plane of figure
