Birefringent Wedge

A birefringent wedge divides a light beam into two orthogonally polarized beams with polarization parallel to the optical axis by a larger angle. Birefringent wedges are often made of YVO4 or LiNbO3, and are widely used in fiber-optic devices such as isolators and circulators. II-VI offers superior-quality YVO4 and LiNbO3 birefringent wedges for a variety of applications.
