birefringent birefringent


  • (adj) relating to or characterized by double refraction


  • Polymer Waveplates offer alternative to quartz waveplates.

    Polymer Waveplates (Retarders) transmit light while modifying its optical polarization state and do not attenuate, deviate, or displace beam. Birefringent polymer film, layered between 2 glass windows, increases durability and handling. Available in ¼ and ½ λ retardance, Retarders act as true zero order waveplates and are available with multiple wavelengths or achromatic designs. Models ...
