Abstract : A simple, high performance, low cost Faraday rotator of 8 cm aperture and 36 dB isolation has been designed and constructed. Two of these rotators have been incorporated into the high power glass laser at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL). Design considerations, construction details, and system integration aspects are discussed. (Author)
