Optical Isolators are passive optical devices which allow light to be transmitted in only one direction. They are most often used to prevent any light from reflecting back down the fibre, as this light would enter the source and cause backscattering and feedback problems.
There are two major classifications of optical isolators. In-line fibre optic isolators are designed in pigtail fashion. They come with built-in fibre optic cable and connectors so that they may be integrated directly into a fibre optic system. Free space isolators do not have an integral connection system. They must be directly mounted to the object that needs isolation.
