Abstract

It is shown that the use of slabs instead of rods makes it possible to fabricate Faraday isolators and Faraday mirrors operating at a multikilowatt power. Analytical dependences of thermally induced depolarization in Faraday devices on radiation power and on slab aspect ratio have been obtained.
