We are very excited about this new, higher extinction ratio because it escalates the level of proficiency to our beamsplitter thin film coating technology.
Similarly, a non-symmetric beamsplitter or polarizing optics can be used to combine the comb and test laser beams in proportions other than 50 %, which is slightly advantageous when the test laser has much less power than the comb (an iodine stabilized laser, for example).
