Global Optical Isolator Market to grow at a CAGR of 6.47% during 2016-2020

Press Release   •   Jan 12, 2017 04:13 EST

About Optical Isolators

Optical isolators are passive devices that enable transmission of light in only one direction. The main purpose of these isolators is to avoid any light from reflecting back into the optical fiber, as there would be backscattering and feedback problems in case the reflected light enters the source. As a result of this superior attribute, optical isolators are used for high data rate transceivers and transponders. In general, optical isolators allow all the light to pass in one direction and block the light in the reverse direction. Optical isolators are considered critical optical components in medical, industrial, and research lasers to avoid optical damage and noise by blocking reflection beams.

Technavios analysts forecast the global optical isolator market to grow at a CAGR of 6.47% during the period 2016-2020.
