PAVOS+ Ultra Faraday Devices for High Power and High Energy Lasers
Electro-Optics Technology (EOT) presents the PAVOS+ Ultra line of Faraday devices, specifically designed to meet the needs of the high power and high energy 1 μm (1010 nm to 1080 nm) laser market. These new components provide stable performance up through 150 W of average power, compared to 80 W for the standard PAVOS+. They offer roughly 1/10th the absorption and thermal lens focal shift. These devices can also theoretically provide ten times lower non-linear refractive index, compared to the standard PAVOS+ rotators and isolators. This results in less Kerr Lens focal shift and a lower B-integral, therefore protecting against catastrophic whole beam self-focusing.
For laser systems having large distances between amplification stages, the reduced thermal lens focal shift of the PAVOS+ Ultra results in greater coupling efficiency and simpler optical design.
he PAVOS+ Ultra family of rotators and isolators deliver industry-best laser reliability and performance. They also provide superior isolation, especially at higher average power levels, while maintaining very high transmission values.
These products rely on the Faraday effect from high Verdet constant, low absorption materials to rotate the plane of linearly polarized light in the forward direction and an additional 45° of non-reciprocal rotation in the reverse direction. The PAVOS+ Ultra is available as a rotator or an isolator.
