Plate beamsplitters are optical components used to divide incident light into two separate beams, typically with a specified ratio of transmission and reflection.
These beamsplitters consist of a thin, flat piece of glass or other transparent material coated with a partially reflective layer. The incident light is partially transmitted through the beamsplitter while the rest is reflected at a specific angle, resulting in two separate beams. Plate beamsplitters are commonly employed in various optical setups, such as interferometers, microscopy, and beam profiling, where it is necessary to split and direct light efficiently. They offer precise control over the ratio of transmitted and reflected light, making them versatile tools for a wide range of applications in research, industry, and scientific instrumentation.
