Paper Abstract

Isolation performance of a tunable optical isolator possessing linear birefringence is analyzed. More accurate adjustments in output polarizer angle and in Faraday rotation angle are required for the birefringent tunable optical isolator, that is, the range of the adjustment angles to tune the birefringent isolator (δ = 0.5 degree) for isolation > 50dB at 840nm is 53% narrower than the birefringenceless isolator.
