Abstract

Asymmetric propagation of electromagnetic or elastic waves is important for control of the signal flow in various devices. Through mutual consistent theory analysis and numerical simulations to discuss the parity–time (PT) symmetry, we proposed and studied a linear silicon photonic device that shows asymmetric optical mode conversion. Remarkably, unidirectional mode conversion is observed at the threshold of breaking of the PT symmetry of our system. The corresponding theoretical analysis is expected to help design of chip-scale directional photonic devices.
