Features

High Retardation Accuracy

Achromatic Quartz-MgF2 Zero-Order Wave Plates provide a much higher degree of retardation accuracy than regular zero-order quartz wave plates. Achromatic Quartz-MgF2 Wave Plates operate over a broad wavelength range, compared to the single wavelength performance of zero-order quartz wave plates.

Wavelength Performance of Common Quarter Waveplates

Black Anodized Aluminum Housing

The assembly is mounted in a 25.4 mm or 30 mm black anodized aluminum housing for protection and ease of mounting, with the retarder fast axis marked for alignment reference. The standard 25.4 mm outer diameter is convenient for mounting into Newport rotary mounts. The larger diameter waveplates are designed for ultrafast laser applications.

Dual Crystal Design

Achromatic Quartz-MgF2 Zero-Order Wave Plates consist of crystalline quartz and magnesium fluoride (MgF2) crystals, each with a highly efficient broadband antireflection coating, in an air-spaced design. This construction ensures excellent transmitted wavefront quality, while minimizing beam deviation and surface reflection losses. Because of the air-space design, our Achromatic Quartz-MgF2 Wave Plates have a higher damage threshold than achromatic polymer film wave plates.
