An interferometric optical isolator, with a Si guiding layer, employing a nonreciprocal phase shift was studied. The optical isolator was comprised of a magneto-optic waveguide with a magnetic garnet/Si/SiO2 structure, which was fabricated by wafer bonding technique. The nonreciprocal phase shift in the magneto-optic waveguide with the Si guiding layer was calculated at a wavelength of 1.55 μm. Several kinds of layer structures in the magneto-optic waveguide were discussed.
