01/2014 - colorPol® Xtrafine – excellent characteristics in only 25 µm thick
CODIXX extends the colorPol® family with a new product - the colorPol® Xtrafine.
colorPol® Xtrafine stands for high performance and unique properties packaged in a very thin shape. Until now the colorPol® polarizers were available within a thickness range of 0.2 to 0.5 mm. But with continuous development activities in close collaboration with customers CODIXX realized a new polarizer with a thickness of 25 µm.
Despite its thin shape the colorPol® Xtrafine offers unique transmittance properties of > 88% exceeding 97 % (with AR coating) and contrast ratios above 1,000:1 (30dB) in the spectral range of 1,250 - 1,650 nm. Based on the unique colorPol® technology for doping of sodium silicate glass with prolate silver nanoparticles all colorPol® polarizers provide high temperature stability up to +400° C, resistance against rough environmental influences, against the most chemicals, UV radiation and bleaching as well as the ease applicability to name a few and complies completely with international RoHS- requirements. With the enhancement of the colorPol® polarizer family by the colorPol® Xtrafine CODIXX makes another important step to enter into the future market of the optical communication.
CODIXX is a german manufacturer of optical glass polarizers for the infrared, the visible andUV spectral range. On the cutting edge of nanotechnology, its leading role is a result of steady development since it was founded in 1998.
