Abstract

The Verdet constant and thermo-optical characteristics of a Si-doped and Ti-doped terbium aluminum garnet ceramics have been investigated. It is shown that the Verdet constant of the samples is 40% higher than that of TGG ceramics at 1064 nm. The best samples of Si:TAG have magneto-optical figures of merit more than 1.5 times greater than those of TGG ceramics. Si:TAG is better than TGG ceramics as a medium for high-power Faraday isolators.
