Elliot Scientific's range of high power zero order waveplates are manufactured by Spectral Optics using an adhesive-free Molecular Fusion™ process for permanent bonding. This produces components with the damage threshold of an optically contacted interface, and the mechanical strength of a solid component. Zero-order waveplates are far superior in temperature stability and wavelength tolerance, but have usually been more expensive than multiple-order components, but now these performance advantages are available at low cost due to new proprietry manufacturing techniques.
