Multiple Order Waveplates
Multiple order waveplates are manufactured from a single piece of crystal quartz with its optics axis parallel with the surface. The thickness (usually about 1 mm) makes it very sensitive to the temperature, incident angle, and wavelength bandwidth. Its damage threshold is high (more than 500 MW/cm2).
Zero Order Waveplates
Zero order waveplates are designed to provide a retardance of full waves, plus the desired fraction. Zero order waveplates have broader temperature bandwidth and wavelength bandwidth properties than multiple order waveplates.
True Zero Order Waveplates
True zero order waveplates are made of a very thin plate or cemented with a substrate, which ensures better possible angle, higher temperature stability, and wider wavelength bandwidth. Therefore, it is a superior choice for the highly accurate application.
