Beam splitters are optical instruments used to split incident light at a designated ratio into two separate beams. Beam splitters can be used in reverse to combine two different beams into a single beam. The UV beam splitter cube is made of a pair of prisms that are made from a fluoride material, and a coating interface having at least one layer of a thin film fluoride material. These beam splitters are characterized by their structures, shapes, etc. The most common beam splitters are cube and plate beam splitters. The cube beam splitters are made from two triangular glass prisms which are glued together at their base using polyester, epoxy, or urethane-based adhesives. Deep UV beam splitter cube is transmissive to light at wavelengths equal to or less than 170 nm, at high quality, light incident over a wide range of angles and including a numeric aperture greater than 0.6. Deep UV beam Splitter Cube provides fixed attenuation and beams sampling for performing diagnostics on high-power laser sources. Beam splitter cube is available for high-power UV laser sources. Beam splitter uses the front surface reflection from an uncoated laser mirror to achieve a reflection range of  3% to 10% of the main laser beam for further analysis. The surface is polished to 10-5 scratch-dig and 1/10 wave finish, wedged at 30 arcmins to avoid interference fringes and can take power densities up to 2 GW/cm2. Deep UV deep UV beam splitter cubes are constructed using two right-angled prisms. The hypotenuse surface of one prism is coated, and the two prisms are cemented together so that they form a cubic shape. These beams more split have equal  Reflected and Transmitted Optical Path Lengths. Beam splitters come in the form of a reflective device that can split beams into exactly 50/50, half of the beam being transmitted through the splitter and half being reflected.

How Laser Beam Splitter Work

These beam splitters are applied in areas like emission image splitting, which splits image incident polarization state of light from a microscope and re-aligning it so one camera can detect multiple images, it is also applicable to multiple camera adapters which splits image light from a microscope into multiple cameras so that each one handles a specific wavelength. Alpine research optics gives access to variety of products optical mirrors.

Application Of Deep UV Light

Deep-ultraviolet (UV) light is widely used in many industries like medicine because it has sufficient energy to kill viruses and bacteria but this need to be done at a particular wavelength because when it exceeds 254 nm can damage human cells, so it is necessary to develop a deep-UV light source with a shorter wavelength to minimize the damage to human cells while still killing viruses. Since UV lights kill cells at a certain wavelength they can be employed in disinfection and sterilization purposes, gas sensing, and water purification. UV-LEDs emit monochromatic light, which enables customized UV-LED disinfection systems at specific wavelengths to be developed. These UV lights are emitted from emitting diodes (LEDs) which have the potential for use as a highly efficient UV decontamination technology.
