Abstract

A new formulation of the finite-element method to analyze nonreciprocal waveguides in magneto-photonic crystals (MPCs) is proposed. Accurate solutions of light propagations for two different directions are obtained by the asymmetrical input condition. As numerical examples, the performance of a waveguide-type optical isolator in MPCs designed by the eigenmode analyses is confirmed by using this method. Subsequently, an effective way to enhance the nonreciprocity of the optical isolator is shown.
