Easy-to-Use - Passive devices; no tuning required. 

Rugged Design - Safely endure harsh operating environments.

Polarization Adjustability - Adjust with optional input and output waveplates. 

1550 nm Faraday Isolators

Shield your laser from back-reflected light from interfaces on downstream optics or back-scattered ASE from optical amplifiers. Use in mapping, LIDAR, medical, chirped pulsed amplification systems.

1550 nm Performance - Optimized for the 1525 to 1575 nm wavelength range. 

Power Handling - Accommodate power levels up to 20 W. 

Polarization Adjustability - Add a waveplate for easy manipulation. 

Low Power Rotators and Isolators

Protect seed sources from the deleterious effects of back reflections in the 1050 nm to 1080 nm wavelength range. 

Polarizer Options - Choice of dichroic glass polarizers or beam splitter cubes. 

High Isolation - Use two isolators in series to achieve 60 db isolation.

Small Footprint - Integrate easily; most models <9 mm.
