For the first time, to the best of our knowledge, the properties of the Faraday effect are addressed in a magnetoplasmonic nanostructure with nonuniform spatial distribution of the magnetization. It is shown that the coincidence in period and phase between magnetization modulation and the field of the optical mode provides the resonant enhancement of the Faraday effect. This effect is observed for both the surface plasmon polariton and waveguide modes.Β

Wide tunability of magnetoplasmonic crystals due to excitation of multiple waveguide and plasmon modes.

It is shown that MPC with a 30-40 nm thick perforated gold layer provides an effective excitation of two surface plasmon-polariton modes and several numbers of waveguide modes in the garnet layer.
