How to Calculate Peak Retardation?
Peak Retardation calculator uses Peak Retardation = (2*pi)/Wavelength of Light*Length of Fiber*Refractive Index^3*Modulation Voltage to calculate the Peak Retardation, The Peak Retardation formula is defined as the maximum value of retardation in an optical system, especially in the context of devices like waveplates or retarders. Peak Retardation is denoted by Φ_{m} symbol.
How to calculate Peak Retardation using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Peak Retardation, enter Wavelength of Light (λ_{o}), Length of Fiber (r), Refractive Index (n_{ri}) & Modulation Voltage (V_{m}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Peak Retardation calculation can be explained with given input values -> 80.1349 = (2*pi)/3.939*23*1.01^3*2.12.
