 Pavos Series 1010 nm - 1080 nm Faraday Rotators and Optical Isolators - Small Aperture (≤5 mm) Data Sheet

Pavos Series 1010 nm - 1080 nm Faraday Rotators and Optical Isolators - Small Aperture (≤5 mm)

EOT’s Pavos Series Faraday Rotators rotate the plane of polarized light 45° in the forward direction and an additional 45° of non-reciprocal rotation in the reverse direction while maintaining the light’s linear polarization. When placed between crossed polarizers, a Faraday rotator becomes an optical isolator. An optical isolator shields lasers from destabilizing and potentially destructive back-reflected light from interfaces on downstream optics or back-scattered ASE from optical amplifiers. Based on high Verdet constant, low absorption coefficient Terbium-based rotating material, and developed to work with up to 50 W of average input power in the 1 µm wavelength range, Pavos Series optical isolators provide the ultimate protection for polarized output from Nd- or Yb-doped crystal, glass, and fiber lasers.


· Decouple Nd and Yb laser oscillators from ASE created by amplifiers

· Eliminate relaxation oscillations in mode-locked lasers due to optical feedback

· Eliminate frequency instability in seed sources


· Product tested to >400 W CW power

· 2° incident angle on polarizers for reduced insertion losses

· Orthogonal isolated beams

· Precision pointing of isolated beam

· Precision mounting options

· Lockable port covers

· Optional λ/2 plate available for all isolators
