Polymer Waveplates (Retarders) are durable, low-cost alternatives to quartz waveplates that feature a thin birefringent polymer film layered between two glass windows. Polymer Waveplates (Retarders) are designed to act as true zero order waveplates, providing stable performance over wavelength shift and wide angles of incidence. Due to their cemented construction and plastic birefringence material, these waveplates, or retarders, are not recommended for high power laser use or for extreme temperature shifts.
Note: Fast axis is marked on the edge of the glass.
