High energy waveplates

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. The waveplate order depends on the wavelength and retardation required.

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