Abstract

3D and 1D magnetophotonic crystals based on opals impregnated by Bi-substituted iron-yttrium garnet (Bi:YIG) and Bi:YIG-SiO2 paired multilayer structures are fabricated. Magnetization-induced effect (nonlinear magneto-optical Kerr effect) in second- and third-harmonic generation is observed.
