Lightel Offers Broadband Faraday Rotator Mirrors



RENTON, Wash., December 11, 2017 — Lightel® announces the availability of broadband faraday rotator mirrors (FRM).

Faraday Rotator Mirrors (FRMs) are used in a number of fiber optic applications including interferometric sensor systems. In general, FRM’s performance parameters are specified over a central wavelength and narrow temperature range.

Lightel now offers a compact form factor broadband FRM (BFRM) that rotates the light 90 degrees with ≤1.0dB insertion loss over a wavelength range of 1550nm ±20nm and a temperature range of -20°C to +70°C.

The user can select from fiber pigtails with either SMF-28e or polarization maintaining PANDA, 250 micron bare fiber or 900 micron loose tube and FC, SC, or LC ultra and angle polished connectors.
