Comparison of low-order waveplate, zero-order waveplate and true zero-order waveplate

Low-order waveplate, Zero-order waveplate and True Zero-order Waveplate are interchangeable for most of applications. For some critical applications, Zero-order waveplate and True Zero-order Waveplate should be considered. The advantages of zero-order waveplate are an increased bandwidth and a lower sensitivity to temperature changes. However, the normal two plates design zero-order waveplate has a relatively larger thickness which reduces the field angle. For some applications where a large field angle is necessary, true zero order waveplate gives an other solution. These true zero order waveplates are made of a very thin plate or cemented with a BK7 substrate, which ensures the best possible field angle, temperature and wavelength performance.

The following table gives the comparing of low-order waveplate, zero-order waveplate and true zero-order waveplate(based on 1/2@1064nm with 1/100 retardation variation):

Type of Waveplate Low Order waveplate Zero Order waveplate True Zero Order waveplate
Temperature Sensitivity (nm/deg.C) 0.05 0.006 0.006
Spectral Bandwidth (nm) 6.1 42.6 42.6
Acceptance Angle (deg.) 8 4 23
