Check List for Waveplates

Click here to see a check list before buying such products!
  • What retardance do you need – λ/2, λ/4 or anything else, for what wavelength(s)?
  • Will a simple multi-order waveplate be sufficient, or do you need a (true or effective) zero-order waveplate, which can be operated in a much wider wavelength range? (There are also achromatic waveplates for particularly wide wavelength regions.)
  • Should it have anti-reflection coatings – for what wavelengths?
  • Is the surface quality high enough?
  • For use with pulsed lasers: is the optical damage threshold sufficiently high?
  • Might operation in a wide temperature range be a problem?

In case that you need additional advice, consultancy from RP Photonics may be the solution.
