A novel high-speed magneto-optic (MO) modulator which consists of an integrated wire grid polarizer (WGP), Bi-YIG waveguide with cladding layer and conducting micro-strip line is proposed. With the integrated WGP, this MO modulator is faster, more accurate and more stable because it is not only completely driven by electric signals but also has no mechanically moving parts. Moreover, it is compact-structured and low-cost. Large Faraday rotation is obtained with specific arrangement of the directions of the bias magnetic field and the modulation RF magnetic field. Optical route and optic-electrical detect circuit are also designed and analyzed.
