Abstract

We present a theory on a novel class of magneto-optical devices operated by means of magneto-optically induced refractive-index perturbations in chirped Bragg gratings. The predicted effect of the introduced perturbation is an opening of a narrow transmission window in the band-blocking transmission of the chirped grating. The narrow transmission window is tunable in wavelength, and relative transmission and the effects of multiple, spatially separated perturbations can also be superimposed, hence allowing for tunable, magneto-optically operated, multichannel add–drop multiplexors suitable for modularization in integrated optics.
