Multiple order Waveplates

Featured Product from CeNing Optics Co., Ltd.


Multiple order waveplates are made from a single crystalline plate, which are designed to give a retardance of several full waves, plus the desired fraction.

Multiple order waveplates are more susceptible to change in wavelength and they should not be used more than several nanometers outside of design wavelength.
