Pancake Lens Basics

Pancake architecture achieves folding of the optical path thanks to polarization control

  • More compact than other architectures due to light path folding

  • Image ghosts are higher as compared to a purely refractive lens

  • Sensitive to rotation of the polarization control elements and material birefringence
