Abstract

Nonreciprocal intensity transmission in optical fibers can be realized by use of an asymmetric fiber taper. A few-mode fiber taper-based nonreciprocal component is designed, and its nonreciprocal transmission characteristics are demonstrated. This structure can be employed to build polarization-independent all-fiber isolators or fiber-optic sensors.
