Waveplate is an optic in which the polished faces contain the optical axis. All light incidents normal to the surface are composed of components polarized parallel and perpendicular to the axis. In such a device, light polarized parallel to the axis will propagate slower than light polarized perpendicular to the axis. As the light ...

Data Sheet
Waveplates are made from materials which exhibit birefringence. The velocity of the extraordinary and ordinary rays through the birefringent material varies inversely with their refractive indices. This difference in velocities gives a rise to phase difference when two beams recombine. At any specific wavelength ...

Did You know?

A wave plate (retarder or phase shifter) is an optical element which changes the polarization of the light wave that passes through. Wave plates work by shifting the phase between two perpendicular polarization components of the light wave. A common configuration of a wave plate is a plane-parallel substrate of birefringent crystal, typically quartz, mica, or magnesium fluoride. Wave plates come in configured for different retardations such as a quarter, half or full wave. A quarter wave plate changes linear polarization to circular, while a half wave plate changes the handedness of the circular polarization. By using different combinations it is possible to isolate one or two wavelengths simultaneously, eliminate or compensate for ellipticity and even rotate one wavelength relative to another. The utility of wave plates depends upon a number of factors such as operating temperature range, wavelength bandwidth, damage threshold, etc.
