Transmittance up to 97% and contrast greater than 100.000:1 (50 dB) for UV, visible and IR wavelength ranges (350 – 420 nm, 440 – 5,000 nm) are just some of the colorPol® polarizer properties. Even with only 220 µm thickness, they are resistant to most chemicals, temperatures up to 400°C and UV radiation.
colorPol® polarizers are made to match your design, without any trouble to incorporate a mass-produced polarizer. Not only size and shape can be adapted, but also wavelength range, transmittance, contrast, thickness, beam deviation and many more as well. Giving your application all necessary flexibility.
Due to the unique production process, customizations can be easily made even without any surcharge. Saving you time, effort and budget by using colorPol® polarizers.
Soda-lime glass and silver nanoparticles are the main components of colorPol® polarizers. The silver is completely embedded in the glass, making the polarizer easy to handle, process and clean – just like regular glass.
CODIXX has been in the market for more than 20 years. Focusing on what we are good at: high performance polarizers and their further improvement. To ensure the highest quality, CODIXX is using a quality management certified by ISO 9001 since its founding.
colorPol® polarizers are 100% made in Germany. All departments are located together in one place in Germany, ensuring quick and efficient communication.
CODIXX AG is a manufacturer specialized on dichroic glass polarizers for the medical, pharmaceutical and diagnostics market
The company is based in Germany with customers on five different continents. Working close together with a network of distributors, CODIXX offers local customer service in countries nearly all over the world.
Dichroic colorPol® Polarizers
CODIXX has more than 20 years’ experience as a manufacturer of high-quality polarizers, known worldwide under the trademark colorPol®. They are dichroic polarizers made of soda lime glass with silver nanoparticles embedded near both surfaces. Depending on the size and shape of the silver particles, a wavelength dependent absorption causes polarization.
Unlike many other polarizers, colorPol® polarizers are available in a wide range of spectral characteristics covering UV (340 – 420 nm) to VIS, NIR and MIR (440 – 5,000 nm) wavelength range. High transmittance of over 97% (with anti-reflection coating) and contrast up to 100 000:1 (50dB) open a broad field of applications.
colorPol® polarizers made of glass are a durable choice:
thin like foil polarizers (0.2 – 0.5 mm, more options are realizable by laminating)
resistant to UV radiation and most chemicals
±20° wide acceptance angle for incident radiation
operate in temperatures between -50°C and +400°C
high accuracy of polarization axis to a defined edge
easy to handle, clean and process – just like regular glass or wavers
We cover a broad variety of standard polarizers and custom products. With colorPol® polarizers it is no longer necessary to match your application to a polarizer. Instead, the polarizer will be made to match your application by various customization options.
Popular customization options are:
specific wavelength of maximum polarization
customized wavelength range within the physical restrictions of 340 nm – 420 nm and 440 nm – 5,000 nm
various shapes and sizes up to 100.0 x 60.0 mm²
AR coatings as V-coating or wide-band version for individual wavelength
patterned polarizers with segments of different size, shape and number for distinctive polarization axis or wavelength range
optionally mounted for easier handling and operation
State-of-the-art equipment is used to measure and record product and process quality. After every main production step the product is carefully analyzed for imperfections and optical properties are measured. All information is documented and used to maintain a high level of quality. CODIXX uses a DIN EN ISO 9001 certified quality management system to continuously improve all processes to meet rising customer requirements.
Aware of the social and environmental responsibilities of a modern company, we take great care to avoid conflicting material and resources. Waste material is recycled as far as possible and all products are REACH, RoHS and PFOS compliant.
