Abstract

We propose an approach for the design of resonant cavities employed in magnetophotonic crystal (MPC) circulators and isolators. Starting from the analysis of a model circularly symmetric cavity, we show how to obtain a significant splitting of the eigenfrequencies of the two counterrotating cavity modes without introducing subdomains magnetized in opposite directions. Using the multiple-scattering method extended to handle uniaxial gyrotropic materials, we demonstrate numerically an MPC circulator working in a uniform external magnetic field.
