Epoxy-free waveplates for high-energy applications withstand an energy density of >20 J/cm2 @ 1064 nm for 10 ns pulses with a 10 Hz pulse-repetition rate. Their unique design minimizes adjustment sensitivity because of a wide acceptance angle. As the usage temperature bandwidth is more than 200 K, such waveplates can be used in hazardous conditions with no additional losses. The waveplate order depends on the wavelength and retardation required.

  • High extinction ratio
  • Wide acceptance angle
  • Wide temperature bandwidth
  • Extremely useful in UV applications
