28 August 2015 Femtosecond control of magneto-optical effects in magnetoplasmonic crystals
Author Affiliations +
We have demonstrated remarkable enhancement of longitudinal and transverse magneto-optical Kerr effects in magnetoplasmonic crystals based on thin nanostructured films of nickel and iron due to resonant excitation of magnetoplasmonic waves in Faraday and Voight configurations . Manifestations of ultrafast time-dependent transverse magneto-optical Kerr effect are experimentally demonstrated in femtosecond laser pulses reflected from a one-dimensional magnetoplasmonic crystal. We show that exciting surface plasmon-polaritons with magnetization-dependent dispersion law allows one to control the shape of the refected pulse.
