Paper Abstract

It is shown that crystalline quartz which is placed inside the telescope and whose optical axis is parallel to the beam axis may decrease the depolarization of radiation caused by thermally induced birefringence in the Faraday isolator. The isolation ratio has been increased by a factor of 8 in experiment.
