Product Description

1/4 Waveplates and Zero Order Waveplates

Introduction for Crystal Quartz Waveplates

Zero Order Waveplate are made from materials which exhibit birefringence. The velocities of the extraordinary and ordinary rays through the birefringent material varies inversely with their refractive indices. This difference in velocities gives rise to a phase difference when the two beams recombine. At any specific wavelength the phase difference is governed by the thickness of the retarder - waveplate .

Zero Order Waveplate Details

Half (λ/2) Waveplate. A linearly polarized beam incident on a half wave crystal quartz waveplate emerges as a linearly polarized beam but rotated such that its angle to the optical axis is twice that of the incident beam. Therefore, half-waveplates can be used as continuously adjustable polarization rotators.

Quarter (λ/4) Waveplate - thin-film compensator. If the angle between the electric field vector of the incident linearly polarized beam and the retarder principal plane of the quarter-waveplate is 45, the emergent beam is circularly polarized. When a quarter waveplate is double passed, i.e. by mirror reflection, it acts as a half waveplates and rotates the plane of polarization to a certain angle. Quarter waveplate are used in creating circular polarization from linear or linear polarization from circular, ellipsometry, optical pumping, suppressing unwanted reflection and optical isolation.

Zero Order waveplate are generally preferred since high quality zero order Waveplate are least sensitive to variations in wavelength, angle of incidence and temperature.
