Magnetoplasmonics: Magnetoplasmonics: Combining Magnetic and Plasmonic Functionalities (Advanced Optical Materials 1/2013)




Cebollada and co-workers review on page 10 how the combination of plasmonic and magnetic functionalities gives rise to magnetoplasmonic systems, where both the magneto-optical and plasmonic properties can be engineered. For example, the effect of the magnetic field on the optical properties of these systems can be increased under plasmon excitation. Additionally, in these systems, the wavelength of the propagating surface plasmons can be externally controlled under the application of a magnetic field.
