MWIR and LWIR waveplates

Share this on social media:

Edmund Optics has introduced mid-wave infrared (MWIR) and long-wave infrared (LWIR) waveplates. These versatile waveplates are designed for a wide variety of infrared applications in the 3-9μm wavelength range.

When compared with multiple order waveplates, zero order MWIR and LWIR waveplates provide increased bandwidth and lower sensitivity to temperature change. Ideally suited for a wide variety of IR applications, the MWIR and LWIR waveplates are available with ¼λ or ½λ retardance over a range of 3-9μm. The waveplates offer very efficient retardation over a broad spectral range.

Each MWIR and LWIR waveplate is anti-reflection coated and has been mounted for ease of alignment and simplified system integration.
