Photonic Crystal Polarizing Optical Components

Axial polarization conversion element SWP Series

A waveplate with 12 axial-azimuth regions that can realize axis-oriented polarization simply by inserting it into the optical path.
It converts linear polarization into radial (radial) or concentric (azimuthal) polarization.
The high transmittance achieves a conversion efficiency of almost 100%.
It is effective in optical tweezers, laser processing, etc.
Wavelength/size is available on request.
