Polarisation & Phase Control

Polarisation is the state or behaviour of the transverse electric field of a light wave.
Product Categories

Polarisation is the state or behaviour of the transverse electric field of a light wave. Since the electric component of light is measurably affected by interaction of light with matter and energy, the polarisation characteristics of light can provide diagnostic information for a broad range of applications. Remote sensing, solar astronomy, atomic and molecular spectroscopy, and materials analysis are examples of the fields in which polarisation measurements are employed.

Precise control and measurement of polarisation behaviour is necessary to obtain optimal performance from optical components and systems.

Liquid Crystal Devices

Meadowlark Optics provide Parallel Aligned Nematic, Twisted Nematic and Ferroelectric liquid crystals. These are used in variable retarders/waveplates, polarisation rotators and attenuators/shutters from the UV to the MIR.  With achromatic, high speed and binary options available.

Spatial Light Modulators

We offer a wide range of Meadowlark optic spatial light modulators, from Optical Kits to transmissive and high-speed SLM’S. Each product offers a unique wavelength range and LC response time to shape spectra and pulses. Perfect for optical tweezing, Neuroscience, Optogenetics and Microscopy.

What's New?

We’ve recently refreshed our website, and we hope that you will find the changes to be a big improvement. We’ve worked hard to make it easier to navigate the site, and to find exactly what you need from among our vast and diverse range of products.

Missing e-commerce?

One thing that we’ve not carried over from the previous site at this time is the facility to order online for a select range of our products, which you may have been used to in the past. “Off-the-shelf” items represent a small part of our product range; most often a purchase requires a more in-depth discussion between our sales team and the customer to match the right product to the user’s application. For this reason we have focussed on making it as easy as possible to request a quotation from our sales team.

Please rest assured that we will get back to you with pricing promptly, and will work with you to make sure the products you buy are exactly what you need. Once you’re ready to order, our sales team will work through the process with you, to make it as seamless as possible.

Once you’ve selected all the items you’re interested in, by clicking “Add to Quote” on the product page, just click “View Quote Request List” or the icon in the top navigation bar, check your list, set quantities, complete your details and submit the form. Our sales team will respond by email, in a timely manner.

If you have any other questions in the meantime, please get in touch directly.
