TORNOS Rotators and Isolators


Available at several center wavelengths from 500 nm to 1064 nm, TORNOS Rotators and Isolators prevent optical feedback that could adversely affect laser performance. 

TORNOS Rotators and Isolators eliminate frequency instability in amplified laser systems. Their high transmission increases overall efficiency, extending pump diode lifetimes. Broadband models are ideal for laboratory use with tunable lasers and multi-wavelength applications. 


TORNOS Rotators and Isolators - Key Parameters

Manipulate the final polarization using an optional waveplate. Safely use any TORNOS Rotator or Isolator below the following damage thresholds:  25 W/cm² CW, 1 J/cm² at 10 ns. Wavelength range 500 nm to 1064 nm.
