PAVOS Ultra High Power Optical Isolators - 1010 nm to 1080 nm
The PAVOS Ultra line of Faraday devices offers roughly 1/10th the absorption and thermal lens focal shift and can theoretically provide ten times lower non-linear refractive index compared to the standard PAVOS rotators and isolators. This results in less Kerr Lens focal shift and a lower B-integral protecting against catastrophic whole beam self-focusing. The PAVOS Ultra line has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the high power and high energy 1 µm (1010 nm to 1080 nm) laser market with stable performance up through 400 W* of average power.
Our PAVOS Ultra rotators and isolators deliver industry-best laser reliability and performance. The PAVOS Ultra family of Faraday devices provide superior isolation, especially at higher average power levels, while maintaining very high transmission values.
EOT's PAVOS Ultra products rely on the Faraday effect from high Verdet constant, low absorption materials to rotate the plane of linearly polarized light in the forward direction and an additional 45° of non-reciprocal rotation in the reverse direction.The PAVOS Ultra is available as a rotator or an isolator.
