It is shown that a one-dimensional magnetophotonic crystal with a nonlinear cavity layer exhibits bistable optical response accompanied by abrupt polarization switching between two circular or elliptical polarizations for transmitted and reflected waves. The effect is explained in terms of field localization at cavity-mode spectral resonances and can be used in the design of thin-film tunable optical isolators and polarization transformation devices.
