    We investigate the possibility of using silicon waveguides as Faraday rotators for optical isolators. We employ multimode waveguides with a square cross-section. This approach offers the opportunity to introduce integrated nonreciprocal components into the silicon-on-insulator platform without complication of an additional magneto-optical material.
