Zero Order Waveplates

  • Better performance than low order waveplates

The zero order waveplate is designed to give a retardance of zero full waves, plus the desired fraction. Zero order waveplates show better performance than multiple order waveplates.

These waveplates exhibit broad bandwidth and a lower sensitivity to temperature and wavelength changes. They should be considered for more critical applications.

We offer optically contacted, cemented and air-spaced zero order waveplates. The choice depends essentially on economics and power handling capabilities.
Choosing the right waveplate for your application can be a bewildering task, as we offer a wide range for many different uses. Feel free to call us for assistance. Our experienced staff is only too pleased to help you with the decision process.
