Waveplate / Retardation Plate Type
           
   Your choices are...         
   Quarter Wave (λ/4)       Quarter waveplates are made of a double-refracting crystal. They have such a density that a phase difference of one-quarter cycle is formed between the ordinary and extraordinary elements of light passing through. 
   Half Wave (λ/2)       Half waveplates are made of a double-refracting crystal. They have such a density that a phase difference of one-half cycle is formed between the ordinary and extraordinary elements of light passing through. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Waveplate / Retardation Plate Order      The retardation value of a multiple order waveplate is strongly dependent on temperature, wavelength, and angle of incidence. Zero order waveplates do not have this dependency.
   Your choices are...         
   Zero Order       If the phase difference at emergence is the actual phase shift and not some equivalent multiple, the retardation is said to be zero order (first order). 
   Multiple Order       If the phase difference at emergence is the not the actual phase shift and some equivalent multiple, the retardation is said to be multiple order. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Material
   Polarizer Material       
   Your choices are...         
   Achromatic       Achromatic polarizers have two plates that are used so that the spectral dispersion of birefringence in each plate cancels out over a defined spectral range. 
   BK7 Glass       BK7 glass is boro-crown glass (borosilicate glass). BK7 has a wavelength range of 330-2100 nm. 
   Calcite       Calcite is a bifringent material that is used for retardation plates.o-1.658; ne-1.486 
   Mica       Mica provides low-cost, general purpose retardation plates. Mica does, however, have a relatively strong absorption and low resistance to damage. It should therefore be limited to low power applications. 
   Quartz       Quartz is a bifringent material that is used for retardation plates. no-1.544; ne-1.553 
   SF2 Glass       SF2 Glass is dense flint (alkaline silicate glasses with 47% wt. PbO). 
   UV grade fused Silica       UV grade fused silica offer improved transmission in the ultraviolet region compared to crown glass. The wavelength range is 200-2500 nm. 
   Other Material       Any other material type not listed. 
   Search Logic:      Products with the selected attribute will be returned as matches. Leaving or selecting "No Preference" will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
