Waveplates, High Power, First Order

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Altechna


Description :

Epoxy free waveplates for high power applications withstand energy density up to >20 J/cm² @ 1064nm for 10ns pulses with 10 Hz pulse repetition rate. Unique design minimizes adjustment sensitivity because of wide acceptance angle. Since usage temperature bandwidth is more than 200 K, waveplate can be used in hazardous conditions with no additional losses. Waveplate order depends on design wavelength and retardation.
