MIEZE (Modulation of IntEnsity with Zero Effort) spectroscopy is a high-resolution spin echo technique optimized for the study of magnetic samples and samples under depolarizing conditions. It requires a polarization analyzer in between spin flippers and the sample position. For this, the device needs to be compact and insensitive to stray fields from large magnetic fields at the sample position. For MIEZE, in small angle scattering geometry, it is further essential that the analyzer does not affect the beam profile, divergence, or trajectory. Here, we compare different polarization analyzers for MIEZE and show the performance of the final design, a transmission bender, which we compare to McStas simulations. Commissioning experiments have uncovered spurious scattering in the scattering profile of the bender, which most likely originates from double Bragg scattering in bent silicon.
