Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


A semi-leaky isolator was fabricated by bonding LiNbO3 onto a magneto-optic garnet wave guide. Directional mode conversion between TE guided and TM radiation modes enables isolator operation. Characteristics of the semi-leaky isolator were investigated.
