A simple bipolar mechanical shutter which combined fast switching, high timing precision and ultimate extinction was developed. The shutter was capable of closing an aperture of 5 mm at a maximum speed of 1.7 mm/ms with a timing jitter of less than 10 μs. It was found that when combined with polarization optics, the device can also be used as an alterable switch and adjustable attenuator.
