We have succeeded in designing a one-dimensional two-way unidirectional acoustic filter in the linear regime for the first time by combining the concept of functionally graded phononics and the free vibration characteristic of a finite-sized phononic structure. Such a design also enables the realization of a truly one-dimensional and linear bi-directional acoustic diode. The key to this design is to locate a natural frequency precisely in a band gap, and we show theoretically here that this frequency should be associated with an edge mode. The efficiency of the acoustic diode is also discussed and optimized.
