Polarizer and Beam Splitter

The polarizer's transmission is maximized for the wavelength range 450 nm to 1100 nm. The extinction ratio is 10,000:1 at ±3 degrees. The polarizer is mounted into a cube on the automated filterwheel (it accommodates up to 4 optical elements) and is selected through the software.

The 50/50 beam splitter transmits in the range 380-750 nm. The beam splitter is mounted in a cube on the automated filterwheel (it accommodates up to 4 optical elements) and is selected through the software.

Filters

The ISS ALBA confocal unit mounts the filter cube for 18 mm filter by Nikon. Such filter cubes are available through ISS or through Chroma Technology (Model 91000). The cube is mounted on the automated filterwheel (it accommodates up to 4 optical elements) and is selected through the software.

The Nikon microscope Model TE2000 mounts a 25 mm filter cube (Chroma Model 91020).
