In this work, we present the design of integrable magnetoplasmonic isolators and modulators, based on a longrange magnetoplasmonic waveguide structure. With the addition of magnetized cerium-substituted yttrium iron garnet waveguides and planar samarium-cobalt biasing magnets to a Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI), we show that an efficient isolator architecture can be implemented with insertion loss of 2.51 dB and an isolation of 22.82 dB within a small footprint of 6:4 x 10-3 mm2. Additionally, employing bismuth-substituted yttrium iron garnet in a MZI and transient magnetic fields from nearby transmission lines, we propose a high-speed electrical-to-optical clock multiplier. Such a device exhibits a modulation depth of 16.26 dB, and an output modulation frequency of 279.9 MHz. Thus, input clock signals can be multiplied by factors of 2:1 x 103. These devices are envisioned as fundamental constituents of future integrated nanoplasmonic circuits.
