Intensity magnetooptical effect in magnetoplasmonic crystals
MetadataShow full item record
Significant increase of the intensity magnetooptical effect (transversal Kerr effect) is observed in transmission for a magnetoplasmonic crystal consisting of the perforated noble-metal film attached to a smooth magnetic dielectric layer. It is largely due to the magnetic field induced shift of the Fano resonances in transmission associated with the surface plasmon polaritons excited at the metal/magnetic-dielectric interface. It is shown that the quasi-guided modes of the magnetic layer also lead to the enhancement of the intensity magnetooptical effect. The considered magnetoplasmonic structures are of great importance for applications in telecommunication and molecular sensing as they also drastically enhance other magnetooptical effects.
