    Default waveplate help

    Does a 1/2 waveplate need to be exactly centered with the laser to work correctly? If the laser is translated a couple mm from the center of the waveplate, is the polarization affected?

    Thanks

    from what i understand only rotating a waveplate will make a difference.

    tilt or x y axis movement should not make a difference
