Abstract
When used at oblique angles of incidence, the reflectance and transmittance of thin films exhibit strong polarization effects, particularly for the films inside a glass cube, which result from the fact that the tangential components of the electric and magnetic fields are continuous across each layer interface. However, for many applications, the polarization effects are undesirable and should be reduced. Therefore, the concept of non-polarizing beam splitter is proposed. Up to now, however, most of the reports of non-polarizing beam splitters are suitable for visible light. Therefore, it is necessary to find out some methods to reduce the polarization effects for infrared applications. A design method of infrared non-polarizing beam splitter in a cube is proposed, the theoretical analysis is given, designs for different substrates are demonstrated and the simulations of their optical properties are presented in this paper.
