In this paper, we have reviewed our research on terahertz (THz) isolators and nonreciprocal transmission devices. In addition, we present a new kind of THz isolator based on asymmetry magneto-metasurface. A structured InSb layer coats on the silica substrate in which the numerical simulation shows that this metasurface has isolation over 60dB at 0.646 THz and a 10dB operating bandwidth of 13 GHz under an external magnetic field of 0.3T with an insertion loss less than 2.5dB. This kind of low-loss, high isolation, easy coupling THz magneto-metasurface isolator has broadly potentials for THz application systems. Importantly, we discuss and conclude the necessary conditions of forming THz nonreciprocal transmission in the magneto-material devices, which is strongly related with magneto-material and asymmetric transmission system.
