### Figures (1)

Fig. 1

Definition of angles. The x-axis always coincides with the direction of the optic axis of the achromatic waveplate. OA = optic axis of the individual element.

### Tables (2)

Table I Values for δ ≡ [(ω)2/ω2λ] (λ in Microns)

Table II Values for σ ≡ [(2ω2)/ω2λ] (λ in Microns)

### Equations (8)

$R = ( ∊ − ω ) d λ [ 1 − ϕ 2 / 2 ω ( cos 2 α ω − sin 2 α , ∊ ) ] ,$
$R = ( ∊ − ω ) d λ { 1 − ϕ 2 4 ω [ ( ∊ − ω ) ω ∊ + sin 2 β ( ∊ + ω ) ω ∊ ] } , for d > 0$
$R = ( ∊ − ω ) d λ { 1 − ϕ 2 4 ω [ ( ∊ − ω ) ω ∊ − sin 2 β ( ∊ + ω ) ω ∊ ] } , for d < 0.$
$R = ∑ i = 1 N ∊ i − ω i λ d i − 0.25 ϕ 2 ∑ i = 1 N δ i d i − 0.25 ϕ 2 sin 2 β ∑ i = 1 N σ i | d i | ,$
$δ i ≡ ( ∊ i − ω i ) ω i 2 ∊ i λ 2$
$σ i ≡ ( ∊ i 2 − ω i 2 ) ω i 2 ∊ i λ .$
$Σ σ i | d i | = [ σ ( d 1 − d 2 ) ] MgF 2 + [ σ ( d 1 − d 2 ) ] ADP ,$
$( d 1 − d 2 ) MgF 2 / ( d 1 − d 2 ) ADP = 3.2272 ,$
