Tutorial on millimeter-wave (MMW) Faraday Rotation Isolators

This tutorial on millimeter-wave (MMW) Faraday rotation isolators was designed for MicroHarmonics' employee training but is now being offered to its customers. The material covered in the initial slides is accessible for people with non-technical backgrounds. The subject matter becomes more technical later on but is written in a way to make it easy to understand for most engineers and system developers who might not have much experience with the magnetic side of electromagnetics. Topics covered include:

  • Millimeter-wave spectrum
  • What is an isolator
  • Standing waves
  • Isolator topology
  • Polarization and the physics of Faraday rotation
  • Recent innovations implemented by Micro Harmonics
  • Cryogenic isolators
  • Summary
