Eigenstate Generator Set
Meadowlark Optics Eigenstate Generator Set is a metrology tool that produces six polarization eigenstates: linear polarized light at 0, 90, +45, -45 degrees as well as circular right-handed and left-handed polarized light.
These states are created by using a precision linear polarizer (black housing) and a precision quarter waveplate (blue housing) in conjunction with each other. The housings have an angular accuracy better than 1 arc minute and the pins on the housings mate to a v-groove and a flat groove in a quasi-kinematic fashion with magnets providing the holding force. This scheme facilitates precise, simple and fast indexing of the polarization eigenstates. Eigenstate Retarders are additional retarders that can be purchased at the same time as your Eigenstate Generator set and polarimeter. Wavelengths available from 450-1700 nm.
