Silicon Brewster plate wavelength separator for a mid-IR optical parametric source

Abstract

The availability of optical elements for the mid-infrared wavelength range, such as polarizers and wavelength separators, is limited especially when a broadband wavelength range coverage is required. We propose a polarizer based on uncoated silicon Brewster plates. A detailed analysis of the polarizer’s contrast and the influence of parasitic reflections, its dependence on wavelength, and the angular misalignment is shown. Two different arrangements of the two- and four-plate polarizers are discussed. With contrast including the influence of parasitic reflections of over ${{10}^3}$ for the whole transparency range of silicon (1.2–6.5 µm), the four-plate polarizer is an effective, low-cost, high-power compatible tool providing sufficient contrast for signal and idler beam separation of the broadband mid-infrared Type II optical parametric sources. The proposed polarizers can function as an attenuator assembly without any wave plate.
