Fiber Optic isolator allow only one-way light passes through, and its operating
principle is based on Faraday rotation of non-reciprocity. Echo reflected light through the fiber can be well isolated optical isolator. The main advantage of the optical isolator magneto-optical Faraday effect transistor. Optical isolator features are: positive low insertion loss, high reverse isolation, high return loss. The optical isolator allows the light to one direction is prevented by the opposite direction by the passive components, the function is to limit the direction of the light, the light transmission in one direction only, the reflected return light passes through the fiber optical isolator can be good isolation and improve light transmission efficiency, optical isolator is characterized by high isolation, low insertion loss; high reliability, high stability; very low polarization dependent loss and polarization mode dispersion. Its role is to prevent the adverse effects of light and transmitted light generated by the optical system, e.g., between the semiconductor laser source and an optical transmission system is installed in the optical path due to various causes an optical isolator can largely reduce the adverse effects of reflected light on the stability of the light source spectral output power generated. In the high-speed direct modulation direct detection optical fiber communication systems, the transmission of the light will produce additional noise in the system performance degradation, which also requires an optical isolator to eliminate. Both ends of the fiber amplifier doped fiber isolator is mounted glazing can improve the stability of the optical fiber amplifier, without it, the reflected light enters the source (laser), causing severe fluctuation source. In coherent optical long-distance optical fiber communication systems, at some distance install an optical isolator can reduce the power loss caused by stimulated Brillouin scattering by. Thus, the optical isolator has an important role in optical fiber communication, optical information processing systems, and precision measuring optical fiber sensing system.
The main advantage of the Fiber optical isolator magneto-optical Faraday effect transistor. Faraday Faraday effect was first observed in 1845 is not optically active material in the magnetic field by rotating the polarization direction of light occurring substance, also known as magneto-optical effects. Polarized light transmitted along the magnetic field, whose direction of polarization rotation angle θ and the magnetic field strength B and the material is proportional to the length L of the product. Optical isolator works shown in Figure 1. For normal incident signal light, through a polarizer becomes the linearly polarized light, the Faraday rotating magnetic medium and the polarization direction of the external magnetic field with the right hand 45 of the signal light, and just make a low loss through the polarizer 45 placement of the analyzer. For the reverse light, a polarization analyzer after the placement of the media line deflection direction is right-rotated by 45 degrees, thereby reversing the direction of polarization of the light and the direction perpendicular to the polarizer, the reflected light is completely blocked transmission . Faraday magnetic media within 1μm ~ 2μm wavelength range usually low optical loss yttrium iron garnet (YIG) single crystal. New pigtail input and output optical isolator has a very good performance, the minimum insertion loss of about 0.5dB, isolation of 35 ~ 60dB, up to 70dB.
