Does anyone has experience in optics, specifically polarizers? Not for photography though.
I'm trying to build myself a decent quality SLA 3d printer based on a 4K 12" LCD. Unfortunately LCDs come with very aggressive polarizers that cut most of the UV so I'm trying to find a replacement.
I have found some very interesting products that come in thin films but they are incredibly expensive ($400 per sheet). Ideally I would need high contrast and high transmittance (+50%) in the 395-405nm wavelength range.
I know it's a long shot, but does anyone have some contacts in the field?
