Phase Shifting Mirrors: An Alternative to Traditional Waveplates

Laser systems are growing increasingly complex, and laser intensities are becoming higher than ever before. Due to these advances, conventional quartz waveplates are beginning to approach their limits. The reasons for this are that the waveplates are bounded by the Laser Induced Damage Threshold (LIDT) of the intrinsic material and the physical size of naturally … Continue reading
