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 highly reliable high power Polarization Maintaining(PM) Fiber based Optical Isolators. Our Polarization Maintaining Isolators are available 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 532- 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.
