Wave plates

A wave plate works by shifting the phase of the incident light wave between two perpendicular polarization components. A quarter-wave plate creates a quarter wavelength phase shift and can change linearly polarized light to circular polarized and vice versa. Whereas a half-wave plate creates a half wavelength phase shift and rotates the polarization direction of linear polarized light. Standa offers variety of mounted zero order airspaced waveplates of different clear aperture size and designed for different wavelengths. Waveplates of other types and dimensions are also available upon request.

Resulting codes for ordering:
X - Waveplate: 2 (half waveplate), 4 (quarter waveplate)
YYY - Available standart wavelenght : 266, 355, 488, 532, 633, 780, 800, 1064 nm
Z - Clear aperture: 15mm, 20mm
