Paper Abstract

A waveplate is any optical device which retards one polarization component of an incident wave relative to the orthogonal component. This subject is much too general for our purposes so we will restrict the discussion to retardations of one quarter or one half of a wavelength. In particular, we will be concerned with phase retarders which are constant or nearly so over a significant spectral region.
