Abstract

A nonlinear, coupled, magneto-optic waveguide system supporting bright and dark spatial solitons is investigated to determine the stability and possible application of the resulting bright–dark soliton dynamics. An extensive variational analysis is verified by full numerical simulations. It is discovered that the stability of the magneto-optic coupled states can be exploited to give guaranteed isolator functionality, which could lead to very robust component protection in monolithic integrated circuits.
