Paper Abstract

Intensity-controlled nonreciprocal coupler is proposed and studied analytically and numerically. The structure consists two planar waveguides -- the dielectric waveguide and the asymmetric magneto-optic waveguide -- coupled through a nonlinear Kerr-type medium. The operation of the device is based on the nonreciprocal phase shift for TM modes in magneto-optic waveguide. The coupled mode equations are solved analytically in terms of Jacobian elliptic function. It is shown that the transmission of the device is affected by the intensity of light in different way for the backward and the forward propagation.
