What are Multi-Twist Retarders?
A Multi-Twist Retarder (MTR) is a waveplate-like retardation film that offers precise and customized levels of broadband, narrowband or multiple band retardation in a single thin film.
Our MTRs are Pattern-able, Super-Achromatic, and Low Cost!
How It Works
Through our proprietary design methodologies, we can customize MTRs to achieve precise retardation at select wavelengths or select bands, or even multiple bands in a single film.
|Traditional Retarder||ImagineOptix Retarder|

|Patterning||None||Multiple Domains (any pattern)|
|Wavelength||Narrow, Achromatic||Narrow, Achromatic, Super-Achromatic (400-4000nm)|
|Layers||Multiple Layers/Plates||1-3 Layers of Films|
