Abstract

By considering the phase delay introduced by a birefringent wave plate to each frequency component of a finite bandwidth light source we establish the polarisation state of the transmitted light. Realisable designs of achromatic, zero-order and high-order quarter wave and half wave plates are analysed for use with a variety of light sources with different bandwidths.
