A simple effective achromatic half wave plate has been designed at Spectron by computer analysis of birefringent networks based on Poincare sphere representation. By observing some simple rules and applying selection criteria based on rotational properties of half wave plates, some potentially successful plate configurations have been identified. The most promising of these, a three plate combination, has been chosen for manufacture and is now available from the Spectron product range.
