Faraday Rotators and Mirrors - Pigtail Style

Key Features

  • Singlemode,multimode and polarization maintaining versions available
  • Wide range of center wavelengths
  • Low loss
  • Low back reflection
  • Compact housing

Description

Faraday rotators change the polarization state of light traveling through it. The output polarization state is rotated by 45 degrees with respect to the input polarization. When combined with a mirror, the reflected light is rotated by another 45 degrees, resulting in a 90 degree rotation. In addition, the polarization handedness is reversed by the mirror. This results in a reflected polarization that is orthogonal to the original polarization.

Applications

  • Fiber lasers
  • Interferometers sensors
  • Amplifiers
  • Circulators
