Nanoscale rotator

Nanoscale rotator

The rotation of the polarization of light by magneto-optical materials is well exploited by macroscale devices such as optical isolators, however, demonstrations in nano-optics or plasmonics are lacking due to issues such as dissipation and phasematching. Now, Curtis Firby and colleagues from Canada have proposed an integrated magnetoplasmonic Faraday rotator. They predict 99.4% polarization conversion over an 830-μm-long device using low-loss modes that can propagate over […]
