We modeled transmission and Faraday rotation characteristics of Er-doped all-garnet [Bi3Fe5O12/Gd3Ga5O12]m photonic crystals in view of their application in C-band magneto-optical amplifiers. It is found that 48 layered 11.4 μm thick crystal at λ=1532 nm provides 45° Faraday rotation and transmission as high as 85% being pumped with 100 mW/980 nm solid state laser diode.
