Achromatic air spaced

  • Achromatic waveplates – air spaced – 12.7 mm

    The achromatic waveplates are designed to eliminate wavelength dependence effectively over a wide spectral range, typically several hundred nanometres. The achromatic waveplates are available for four wavelength ranges: 465 nm to 610 nm (VIS), 610 nm to 850 nm (VIS/NIR), 700 nm to 1000 nm (NIR) and 1200 nm to 1650 nm (IR).
      • Wavelength options: 465 nm – 610 nm (VIS) | 610 nm – 850 nm (VIS/NIR) | 700 nm – 1000 nm (NIR) | 1200 nm – 1650 nm (IR)
