Glan-Taylor polarizer is designed to transmit only extraordinary polarization of the beam, while ordinary polarization beam is deflected to the housing. Typical application of the polarizer is “cleaning” the polarization of a light source, or attenuation of polarized light source.
Glan-type polarizers has few advantages over thin film polarizers. Firstly extinction ratio of Glan-type polarizer is higher than TFP by 2-4 orders of magnitude, which allows to have better polarization purity. Second advantage is broadband spectral operation range, whereas TFP are designed for narrow laser line operation. Standard polarizers are mounted into barrel type mounts which are convenient for most applications.
