Frequently Asked Questions

The difference between an achromatic waveplate and a zero-order waveplate is that the two plates in an achromatic waveplate are made from different materials, while the two plates in a zero-order waveplate are made from the same material.

An achromatic waveplate is a type of waveplate made from two different materials, such as crystal quartz and magnesium fluoride, to reduce sensitivity to wavelength change.

The two types of achromatic waveplates are airspaced and cemented, based on the contact methods of the two plates.

The wavelength range for the achromatic waveplate is VIS:465-650nm; NIR:700-1000nm; IR:1200-1650.

The diameter of the half waveplate is 10.0mm, with a diameter tolerance of +0.0; -0.1 mm.
