Optical Isolators are important components of photonic circuits and require breaking of time inversion symmetry. Usually it is achieved with magnetic field but recent years have seen an effort directed toward development of magnetic –field –free optical isolators, based on temporal modulation and/or optical nonlinearity. In this talk various non-magnetic schemes will be compared and the case will be made for the optical isolator based on second and third order nonlinearities that have high degree of isolation and dynamic range

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
