Abstract

A simple design method for suppressing the reflection of the all-optical diode based on the L-shaped photonic crystal (PC) cavity is proposed. Analyzing the linear resonant characteristics of the PC cavity and using the nonlinear coupled-mode theory, the strategy for obtaining reflection-suppressed structure is illustrated. Based on the design rule, a “reflection-suppressed all-optical diode” is presented, and numerical solutions indicate that the designed structure has a small reflection as well as an extremely large nonreciprocal transmission ratio.
