Abstract

We investigate, both theoretically and numerically, the asymmetric light propagation in transverse separation modulated photonic lattices. The theoretical results show that the transmission contrast η of the structure is determined only by the coupling strengths between the chirped lattice and the two boundary uniform lattice portions. The numerical studies demonstrate that η is independent of the separation modulation function of the chirped lattice, which is in good agreement with the theory.
