Circular Polarizers

API circular polarizers are optimal for use in camera, video and sensor applications where sensitivity to linearly polarized light is an issue, but glare reduction is required. Circular polarization is also used in 3D applications as an alternative to linear polarizers.

API circular polarizers are a combination of a linear polarizer and a quarter wave retarder. The result is excellent glare reduction for emissive displays, among other benefits.
