Abstract

We discuss different geometrical structures of optical switches based on two-dimensional photonic crystals with hexagonal geometry of the unit cell and a magneto-optical resonator. Transition between the states on and off in these switches is achieved by an external DC magnetic field. The input and output waveguides can be front–front, side–side, or front–side coupled to the resonator and these different types of coupling can lead to different mechanisms of switching. Analysis of symmetry and scattering matrices of the switches is based on magnetic group theory. Two examples of switches with 60° and 120° bends and their characteristics are also presented.
