Magneto-optic rib-waveguides can be utilized to construct the main component of devices like nonreciprocal Mach-Zehnder interferometers or nonreciprocal directional couplers, in this paper we present detailed investigations of nonreciprocal couplers formed by double layer rib-waveguides with alternating sign of the Faraday rotation, The performance of the proposed devices is simulated by normal mode theory and simple beam propagation calculations which include the incoming and outgoing dividing parts of the directional couplers. It is shown that the device length can be reduced by a factor of 6 as compared to former designs. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
