Conoptics is pleased to announce a new large aperture free-space optical isolators designed for use with Nd:YAG lasers (1064 nm). Optical isolators, also known as Faraday isolators, are magneto-optic devices that preferentially transmit light along a single direction, shielding upstream optics from back reflections. Back reflections can create a number of instabilities in light source.

Additional Information (Factory Settings)
Optical Isolator input and output polarizers are pre-aligned to the rotator glass.
Input polarizer is aligned for vertical input polarization
Note: If your source is horizontally polarized, remove the two screws on the mounting base and rotate the isolator 90 degrees, re-install screws on the mounting base.
Output polarizer is set to 45 degrees from vertical.
