RETS 100

RETS100 provides accurate and various determination results of optical film polarization characteristics. e.g. wavelength dispersion of retardation, orientation angle, optical axis, and etc. Employing non-destructive and non-contact testing, the properties of any kind of single or multi-layered films are accurately checked in safety, in full optimization with customer application.

 Features  (*option)
  • Accurate retardation measurement at designated wavelength with MCPD as a detector

  • *Evaluation of viewing-angle characteristics including Rth parameter analysis with tilt/rotation stage

  • Fixable sample stage for each sample size

  • Precise measurement of micro retardation(0.1nm or more)

  • Measures retardation and axis of each layer for multi-layered sample with non-destructive testing
