Compact High Performance

General Details


  • high isolation
  • Low Insertion Loss
  • high extinction ratio
The Polarization Maintaining Optical Circulator is a compact high performance lightwave component that routes incoming signals from Port 1 to Port 2, and incoming Port 2 signals to Port 3. The component provides high isolation, low insertion loss, high extinction ratio, and excellent environment stability.
