Mid-Wave and Long-Wave Infrared waveplates

Edmund Optics has introduced its new Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) and Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) waveplates.

These waveplates are designed for a wide variety of infrared (IR) applications in the 3μm to 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 variety of IR applications, the MWIR and LWIR waveplates are available with ¼λ or ½λ  retardance over a range of wavelengths from 3μm to 9μm.

Each MWIR and LWIR waveplate has an anti-reflection coating and has been mounted for ease of alignment and simplified system integration. Both MWIR and LWIR waveplates are in stock and available for immediate delivery.
