Waveplates and retarders are optical components designed to transmit light while modifying its polarization state without attenuating, deviating, or displacing the beam.
Waveplates (retarders) are different when used in polarized light than unpolarized light. Consider terminology, fabrication, or applications at Edmund Optics.
Polymer polarizers and retarders, consisting of sheets of polyvinyl alcohol and TAC cellulose triacetate, alter the polarization of light.
Understanding the polarization of laser light is critical for many applications, as polarization impacts reflectance, focusing the beam, and other key behaviors.
