Waveguide optical isolators are investigated for an application to integrated optics. A nonreciprocal loss shift isolator has the advantage of high compatibility with optical active devices. The interferometric waveguide optical isolator that uses nonreciprocal phase shift brought about by the first-order magneto-optic effect is applicable to a variety of waveguide platforms. In a silicon-on-insulator (SOI) waveguide, the low refractive index of buried oxide layer enhances the magneto-optic… CONTINUE READING
