Isolators for OEM




  • Customizable Wavelength, Aperture, Power, Housing, and Polarizers
  • Customized Isolators at Close to Standard Version Prices
  • Wide Range of Application Services Available

OEM and Non-Standard Isolators

In an effort to provide the best possible service to our customers, Thorlabs has made a commitment to ship our most popular free-space and fiber isolator models from stock. We currently offer same-day shipping on more than 90 isolator models. In addition to these stock models, non-stock isolators with differing aperture sizes, wavelength ranges, package sizes, and polarizers are available. These generally have the same price as a similar stock unit.

OEM Application Services
  • Direct Integration to Laser Head Assemblies
  • Combination Isolator and Fiber Coupling Units
  • Minimum Footprint Packages
  • Filter Integration
  • Feedback Monitoring
  • Private Labeling

 

Free-Space Isolators

We are able to provide a wide range of flexibility in manufacturing non-stock, free-space isolators. Almost any selection of specifications from our standard product line can be combined to suit a particular need. The table to the right shows the range of specifications that we can meet.

We offer isolators suitable for both narrowband and broadband applications. The size of the housing is very dependent on the desired max power and aperture size, so please include a note in the quote form below if you have special requirements.

We can also offer our Faraday rotator material for use at wavelengths from 244 to 5000 nm.

 

ParameterRange
Wavelength Range From 244 - 2800 nma
Aperture Sizes  Up to Ø15 mm
Polarization Dependence Dependent or Independent
Max Power Up to 2 GW/cm²
Isolation Up to 60 dB (Tandem Units)
  • Rotator material, for use in the 244 to 5000 nm range, available separately.

Fiber Isolators

Thorlabs is uniquely positioned to draw on experience in classical optics, fiber coupling, and isolators to provide flexible designs for a wide range of fiber optic specifications. Current design efforts are focused on increasing the maximum power of our fiber isolators at and near the 1064 nm wavelength. We offer models with integrated ASE filters and taps. The table to the right highlights the range of specifications that we can meet.

The fiber used is often the limiting factor in determining the maximum power the isolator can handle. We have experience working with single mode (SM) and polarization-maintaining fibers (PM); single-, double- and triple-clad fibers; and specialty fibers like 10-to-30 µm LMA fibers and PM LMA fibers.

In the spectral region below 633 nm, we recommend mounting one of our free-space isolators in a FiberBench system. A FiberBench system consists of pre-designed modules that make it easy to use free-space optical elements with a fiber optic system while maintaining excellent coupling efficiency. Upon request, we can provide select stock isolators in an optic mount with twin steel dowel pins for our FiberBench systems, as shown .

 

ParameterRange
Wavelength Range From 633 - 2050 nma
Polarization Dependence Dependent or Independent
Max Power (Fiber to Free-Space) 30 W
Max Power (Fiber to Fiber) 20 W
