The high extinction ratio optical isolator (polarization-maintaining fiber optic isolators) is a fiber-coupled optical component which lets light pass through in one direction, but block it in the opposite direction. At the same time, by using PM Panda fibers it’s capable of maintaining a well-defined state of polarization (SOP) of the light with a high extinction ratio better than 20dB, 28dB, 30dB, or higher. This high extinction ratio optical isolator (PM isolator) is a good choice in many PM optical systems, since back-reflected light often have deleterious effects on the operating conditions of optical devices. Related Products

High Extinction Ratio Optical Isolator (PM Isolator)

Because of the development of PM optical systems, high extinction ratio optical isolator (polarization-maintaining fiber optic Isolators) has become a very useful component, and normally it’s sealed in a compact and ruggedized pigtailed package.
 
Unless otherwise specified, this fiber-coupled high extinction ratio optical isolator (PM isolator) can be operating on both slow-axis and fast-axis linear polarizations; Transmitting the polarization state on slow axis in one direction and blocking the orthogonal state on fast axis in both directions is available on request.

Notes:

  • The high extinction ratio optical isolator (PM Isolator) is customizable, and the above specifications are subject to change without notice.
  • For device with connectors, IL is 0.3dB higher, RL is 5.0dB lower, ER is 2.0dB lower.
  • Operating on both slow axis and fast axis as standard, slow axis working and fast axis blocked available on request.
  • Unless otherwise specified, the slow axis of the fiber is aligned with the key of the PM fiber connector.
  • Bare fiber should not support the weight of the connector. So that if you need any connectors, it’s better to choose the 900μm loose tube jacket instead of the 250μm bare fiber.
  • For CW high-power optical interconnection, we recommend fusion splice without connectors.
  • For product customization or special requirements, please contact Lfiber’s sales department for availability.
