Abstract

The theory, fabrication, and performance of an adjustable thin-film wave plate are reported. For a particular angle of deposition, the retardance of the fabricated wave plate is simply related to the angle of tilt with respect to the incoming light. An application of the variable wave plate is its use in research on the development of achromatic retarders.
