Linear Polarisers

Synthetic Linear polarising filters (polarisers) possess special properties for selectively absorbing light vibrations in certain planes. When unpolarised light, which is a complex mixture of vibrations lying in all possible directions transverse to the line of travel, is passed through a linear polariser its vibrations become confined to a single linear plane and the light is considered "polarised". This linearly polarised light can be modified to suppress unwanted reflections and to eliminate glare for a variety of applications.

Polaroid Linear Polariser Transmission


Polariser HN32

Polariser: HN32

Type: Neutral linear polariser

Features: Represents the best balance between transmission and extinction for general use. Extinction transmission is about 0.005%.

Typical Applications: Variable density filter systems, photoelastic stress analysis and other application where light modulation is necessary.


Polariser HN38

Polariser: HN38

Type: Neutral linear polariser

Features: Exceptionally free from colour distortion.

Typical Applications: Camera filters, studio light filters, variable colour filter systems, other applications where high transmission is required along with a medium extinction density.


Polariser HN42

Polariser: HN42

Type: Neutral linear polariser

Features: High transmission.

Typical Applications: Photographic, spectrographic and other applications where insertion losses must be kept to a minimum.
