Laser Optical Isolators are used to remove undesirable backreflections from polarized laser beams, increase power stability in laser optical systems, and eliminate feedback-induced damage to sensitive optical components. They are necessary for many applications where even relatively low intensity backreflections can be detrimental to performance. Laser Optical Isolators are used for a range of laser applications, including laser materials processing, sensing, and medical applications.
Edmund Optics offers a variety of Free-Space Optical Isolators, designed and manufactured to provide high isolation and transmission, while handling high power densities. These isolators are ideal for laser applications with stringent requirements.
