  • backreflection
  • optical isolator Also known as an optical diode, an optical isolator is a device that utilizes the Faraday effect to suppress or redirect backscattered or backreflected light in order to allow light transmission in one direction only. Optical isolators are commonly...
  • isolator A device intended to prevent return reflections along a transmission path.
  • enhanced Faraday effect The occurrence of very large rotations in transparent materials at weak magnetic fields as predicted in the classical dispersion theory. This effect was discovered by Mavaluso and Corbino in 1898 in the wings of resonance lines of low-pressure...
  • backscatter The deflection of radiation by scattering processes through angles that exceed 90° with respect to the original direction of motion.
