Paper 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. However, the polarization effects are undesirable in many applications. Novel non-polarizing beam splitter designs are shown, non-polarizing beam splitters with unique optical thin films are achieved through combination of interference and frustrated total internal reflection, the non-polarizing condition expressions based on frustrated total internal reflection is derived, and applied examples of the non-polarizing beam splitters are also presented with the optimization technique and the results of Rp=(50±0.4)% and Rs=(50±0.4)% in the wavelength range of 500-600nm are obtained.
