Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) and Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Waveplates

POSTED 11/17/2011

Zero order waveplates provide increased bandwidth    
 
 
MWIR and LWIR Waveplates from Edmund OpticsEdmund Optics (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces new Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) and Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Waveplates. These versatile waveplates are designed for a wide variety of Infrared (IR) applications in the 3 - 9μm wavelength range.
 
Lower sensitivity to temperature change
When compared with multiple order waveplates, zero order Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) and Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Waveplates provide increased bandwidth and lower sensitivity to temperature change. Ideally suited for a wide variety of Infrared (IR) applications, the MWIR and LWIR waveplates are available with ¼λ or ½λ  retardance over a range of wavelengths from 3 - 9μm. MWIR and LWIR Waveplates offer very efficient retardation over a broad spectral range.
 
Waveplates have anti-reflection coating
Each MWIR and LWIR waveplate is anti-reflection (AR) coated and has been mounted for ease of alignment and simplified system integration. 
 
Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) and Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Waveplates are in stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.
