WAVEPLATES

WAVEPLATES

Specifications:

Synthetic single crystal quartz, dimensional tolerance: +0/-0.25mm diameter,  λ/10 transmitted wavefront distortion, 10-5 scratch-dig, better than 0.5 arc sec parallel, >85% clear aperture retardation tolerance: λ/100 –  λ/600 typical (dependent on wavelength) unmounted

Both faces AR (<0.25%R) coated at operational wavelength.

The Manx Precision Optics part number for waveplates follows the following pattern:

Z (for zero order)                                                             2 (for half wave retardation)                 Operational

CQWP- or                                             – diameter in mm – or                                                               –  wavelength

M (for multiple order)                                                    4 (for quarter wave retardation)    in nm

 

For example: CQWP-Z-25.4-2-248 is a 25.4mm diameter, zero order, half wave retardation waveplate for 248nm.

All waveplates can also be mounted. When mounted, the 25.4mm diameter waveplates will have a minimum 22.1mm clear aperture and an outside mount diameter of 38.1mm, while the mounted 50.8mm diameter waveplates will have a minimum 44.2mm clear aperture and an outside mount diameter of 76.2mm.

Waveplates for other than standard operational wavelengths, different waveplate diameters and uncoated waveplates are also available – please contact us.
