We demonstrate the phenomenon of nonreciprocal extraordinary optical transmission (NEOT) through metallic film with slits on the substrate of magneto-optical materials. Under uniformly magnetization, the system can show non-reciprocal transmission at near-IR frequency range. With a properly designed structure, the nonreciprocity can be as high as 57.6%. Numerical evidence shows that the nonreciprocal performance is sensitive to the incidence angle, as well as to the thickness of the substrate. © 2011 Optical Society of America.
