One-way street for light

onewaystreet_cartoonTogether with our collaborators at UT Austin, we published our work on optomechanical nonreciprocity in Nature Communications. Our experiments demonstrate 10 dB optical isolation in a ring resonator, where optomechanical coupling takes the role of a magnetic field. We present a general theory to describe optomechanical nonreciprocity in multimode systems.
