An Isolator module is comprised of a Faraday Rotator with polarizers, mounted on a dowel-pinned base for mounting onto any FiberBench or FiberTable. Isolator Modules are aligned at OFR for the wavelength specified at time of order. The Isolator is polarization dependent. For a description of isolator function, see page IO-2.
Faraday Rotator Modules
The above isolators are available without polarizers to act as Faraday Rotators. Faraday rotation is wavelength dependent so please discuss your application before ordering. A primary application of a Faraday Rotator is in an Isolator or Circulator. Equally important is its use as a Faraday Rotator Mirror in an interferometer or sensor application. As with the Isolators above, the Faraday Rotator module is mounted on the dowel-pinned base for mounting onto any FiberBench or FiberTabe. The Faraday rotators are ordered as: IOB-3D-λ-I, IOB-D-λ-I
