WGF TM is a wire grid polarizer based on plastic films developed by Asahi Kasei. Together with Fraunhofer IFAM, the performance and usability of these films in the field of sensors, measurement technology and other optical applications was investigated and validated. Through the use of nanosized metal wires, this filter has a high polarisation separation performance in the broad wavelength range, from the visible to the infrared spectral range to the microwave range of the electromagnetic spectrum. By using plastic films as a carrier medium, the WGF can be adapted to almost any surface and shaped accordingly. In addition, it has excellent heat resistance compared to a typical absorption polariser.
In the combination of resolution and speed, the 3D sensors of the C6-3070 series by AT Automation Technology impress with the new WARP technology (Widely Advanced Rapid Profiling).
