Paper Abstract

A straightforward review of magnetooptics is given, emphasising both linear and nonlinear guided wave properties. A global envelope approach is discussed which describes TE-TM interactions and TE-TM vector Manakov-type spatial solitons, in the neighbourhood of wave guide inhomogeneities. The presentation is at a level such that the global method can easily account for the vector soliton dynamics and the nonreciprocity introduced by the magnetooptical influence. It is emphasised that magnetooptic waveguides have great potential in nonlinear optics and are destined to support and enhance a major change in chip technology.
