Achromatic

OptiSource Part Numbering Scheme

Achromatic Waveplates: Achromatic Waveplates are comprised of 2 different birefringent materials, magnesium fluoride and crystal quartz. The combination of these two materials assembled in an air-spaced, allows for higher quality polarization values over a broader spectral region than quartz Zero-Order Waveplate. OptiSource provides achromatic waveplates for 4 different bandwidths over the visible to the near IR regions. These are 450-650nm, 550-750nm, 650-1100nm, & 1050-1500nm.
