The contrast ratio is defined to be k1:k2, where k1is the transmittance of a polarized beam passing the filter and k2 is the transmittance of a polarized beam blocked by the filter.

Contrast ratios ≥ 100,000:1, other thicknesses, shapes or dimensions on request. Reflection losses can be minimized by antireflection coating. AR-coatings are available for different wavelength ranges as V-coating or wide-band version.
