  In some applications cube beamsplitters are not appropriate, and instead plate-type splitters are employed. For the highest levels of wavefront fidelity and power handling, conventional coated BK7 or fused silica plates are excellent choices. However, the plate's thickness inherently causes lateral deviation of the primary beam from its original path.   To avoid this, Spectral Optics has introduced the SuperThin™ splitter, which uses an extremely thin BK7 glass face sheet bonded to a precision frame to maintain adequate reflected and transmitted wavefront quality.

Super Thin PBS vs. Regular PBS 

  Any coating that can be applied to a standard plate splitter can be used with SuperThin™, and its power handling capability approaches that of a conventional plate splitter. SuperThin™ components are also very cost competitive, making them a first choice in any compatible application.
