Abstract

In order to construct perfect magneto-optical isolators (MOIs), we have performed a theoretical study on the case of transmission-type one-dimensional magnetophotonic crystals (MPCs). We have introduced high performance MPC structures with high transmittance and large Faraday rotation, and with the capability of adjusting to perfect MOIs. The adjustment is carried out by tuning the applied magnetic field. All of the MOIs are very thin and, hence, have high potential for application in integrated optical systems.
