Subject: Two inch PBS from Edmund Optics - effect on ETM HWS transmission 

I'm considering the 86-711 2" 532nm PBS from Edmund Optics for the ETM HWS at the sites.

https://www.edmundoptics.com/optics/polarization/linear-polarizers/532nm-50mm-diameter-high-energy-laser-line-polarizer/

The effect on the transmission through the system, compared to the THorlabs PBS, is shown in the attached plot.

Conclusion: it looks almost as effective as the Thorlabs PBS with the added benefit of being 2" in diameter.
