PM Faraday Mirror

PM Faraday Mirror

ACP’s FRDMR Series is a fiber optic polarization rotation mirror designed for fiber optic networks and measurement applications. the device can help to eliminate polarization sensitivity of an optical fiber system. Applications include eliminating polarization induced fluctuations in fiber interferometers, Brillouin amplifier systems, fiber laser systems, and fiber optic antenna remoting systems. FRDMR Series Faraday Mirror is optical path epoxy free and thus offers low insertion loss and high temperature stability.
