Paper Abstract

This paper presents the design of quarter-wave retarders for the Dense Wave Division Multiplexing using parallel mirrors coated with a single layer. The output light from the device is parallel to the input light and displaced by a distance d. The quarter-wave retarder total reflection is in the range of 83%. Error analysis on the design is also presented. The error analysis shows how changes on the angle of incident light and the thin film thicknesses affect the design of the retarders.
