Paper Abstract

We propose an all-fiber nonreciprocal component that allows strongly nonreciprocal power transmission. The component is made of a mechanical fiber mode converter and an asymmetric fiber. The asymmetric fiber made of a few-mode fiber and a single mode fiber is fabricated by the fuse-and-tapering technique. The mechanism of the nonreciprocal transmission is based on the polarization isolation of the mechanical fiber mode converter. The strongly nonreciprocal power transmission of the proposed device operated at 980nm is experimentally demonstrated.
