This is incorrect. You can't build a passive device that is 100% transmissive from one side and 100% reflective on the other side.
You can, however (in theory), build a device that with these properties:
- Light from side A is transmitted and comes out side B
- Light from side B is absorbed and turns into heat
- Absorbed heat is re-radiated, mostly from side A
This thing will be non-reciprocal. I've never heard of anyone building one that looks like a sheet of glass, but they're common for microwaves -- they're called circulators. There's a reason that this new contraption is called an acoustic circulator. The only misleading part is that one-way glass is reciprocal -- this new thing is much more impressive than one-way glass.
