Frequently Asked Questions

Compared with zero order waveplate, multi order waveplate is more sensitive to wavelength and temperature changes. However, they are less expensive and widely used in many applications where the increased sensitivities are not critical.

A multi order waveplate means the retardance of a light path will undergo a certain number of full wavelength shifts in addition to the fractional design retardance.

The damage threshold of a multi order waveplate is >10J/cm2, 20ns, 20Hz.

The surface quality of a multi order waveplate is 20/10 scratch and dig.

The thickness of a multi order waveplate is always around 0.5mm.
