Electromagnetic wave analogue of an electronic diode

Shadrivov, Ilya; Fedotov, Vassili; Powell, David; Zheludev, N; Kivshar, Yuri


An electronic diode is a nonlinear semiconductor circuit component that allows conduction of electrical current in one direction only. A component with similar functionality for electromagnetic waves, an electromagnetic isolator, is based on the Faraday effect of rotation of the polarization state and is also a key component in optical and microwave systems. Here we demonstrate a chiral electromagnetic diode, which is a direct analogue of an electronic diode: its functionality is underpinned by...[Show more]
