  • Description
  • Standard specifications

4Lasers provide mounted crystalline quartz zero-order compensated, air-spaced half-wave and quarter-wave retardance waveplates designed for a particular wavelength in the range of 257 - 1550 nm.

Air-spaced construction enables these waveplates to be used for high-power applications, while zero-order design features lower temperature and wavelength dependence compared to low and multiple order waveplates.
