Low Order Quartz Retarders


Knight Optical can provide custom quartz retarders, in a range of sizes, wavelengths, surface qualities and in a range of mountings.

Custom quartz retarders are available in multi order, having a whole number of waves, plus the desired retardence (in half or quarter waves). We offer a range of coatings to maximise transmittance. It should be noted that zero order quartz retarders have a lower sensitivity to temperature change, which can be helpful.

Quartz is a great material for bespoke optical requirements; it is available in larger sizes and is generally useable from about 180nm to 2700nm. Bespoke quartz retarders are a great way of attaining perfect results from your optical system, and Knight Optical have no qualms in providing them for you.

Knight Optical supply high quality custom quartz retarders made to our exact specification. Every component is individually tested in our state-of-the-art metrology laboratory by our highly skilled technicians to ensure all components meet our high quality standards.

Contact our multilingual technical sales team and discover how Knight Optical’s high quality custom quartz retarders can improve your product and supply chain experience.
