Zero-Order Waveplates are comprised of 2 pieces of crystal quartz with the optical axes assembled at 90° to one another. OptiSource utilizes 3 assembly processes for Zero-Order Waveplates. Standard OptiSource compound Zero-Order Waveplates are optically contacted. Please specify if you wish have your compound Zero-Order Waveplates assembled via another method such as air-spaced or glued. Zero-Order Waveplates are more resistant to polarization shift due to thermal variations during use.
