Optical Isolator is an optical component which allows the transmission of light in only one direction. It is typically used to prevent unwanted back reflection and stopping scattered light from reaching sensitive components, particularly lasers.
Gould Fiber Optics offers a complete line of high quality Single Mode (SM) & Polarization Maintaining(PM) Fiber based Optical Isolators. Our Polarization Dependent and Polarization Independent/Insensitive Isolators are available in low power and high power options with different mechanical packaging and connector options. Gould provides fiber optical isolators that operate over wavelength ranges in near infrared (NIR), IR and broadband. Spectral ranges from 770- 2000 nm.
An optical fiber isolator is used in many optical applications in corporate, industrial, and laboratory settings. They are used in conjunction with fiber optic amplifiers, fiber optic lasers, optical module interfaces, fiber optic links in CATV applications and fiber optic communication systems.
