Zero Order Waveplates

The zero order waveplate is designed to give a retardance of zero full waves, plus the desired fraction. Zero Order Waveplates show better performance than multiple order waveplates. They show a broader bandwidth and a lower sensitivity to temperature and wavelength changes and should be considered for more critical applications.
