Magneto-optical isolator for silicon photonics

Tetsuya Mizumoto

Tokyo Institute of Technology

Tetsuya MIZUMOTO was awarded a Doctor of Engineering degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in March 1984 from the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech). He was promoted to full professor with the Graduate School of Engineering in April 2004 and became Vice President for Education at Tokyo Tech in October 2012. His research activity has been concerned mainly with waveguide optical devices, especially magneto-optic devices and all-optical switching devices. He was awarded IEEE Photonics Society Distinguished Lecturer Awards in 2009, IEEE Fellow grade in 2012, and IEICE Achievement Award in 2012.


An optical isolator is one of developing devices in silicon photonic integrated circuits. The magneto-optical polarization rotation, which is used in conventional isolators and circulators, cannot be applied in... [ view full abstract ]
