Abstract

Experiments towards the realisation of the necessary components for future integrated waveguide optical isolators have been conducted. The design, fabrication and characterisation of GaAs/AlGaAs reciprocal mode converters, realised through the use of three novel approaches, is reported. These devices have been tested at λ=0.9m and 1.3m, producing TE-TM conversion efficiencies up to 70%. Initial investigations into the inclusion of magneto optic materials with III-V semiconductor structures for non-reciprocal mode conversion are also discussed.
