LNF-xxxxxxC4_8A is ultra-low insertion loss cryogenic isolator/circulator operating in the 4‑8 GHz frequency range. They have been designed from ground up to meet the strict requirements of ultra-low temperature physics research. The gold plated OFHC copper body ensures minimum loss and that this loss reaches the lowest possible temperature to minimize thermal noise. The isolator/circulator is packaged in a slim coaxial module using industry standard SMA connectors. The module measures 67.1×24.6×10.2 mm excluding the connectors.
