Abstract

An optical diode (OD) and its application based on the photonic band-gap (PBG) property of chiral photonic crystals are presented. The OD is constructed from wave-plates and cholesteric liquid crystals with two different pitches. The component is polarization sensitive and exhibits passive anisotropic transmission analogous to the electronic diode. The nonreciprocal transmission of linearly polarized light at the different PBG regions is discussed. A new scheme of a color-separating system with the OD is proposed. The OD behavior constitutes the operational mechanism for a color splitter.
