Abstract

We developed an extension of the layer-multiple-scattering method to photonic crystals comprising homogeneous layers of magneto-optical materials. The applicability of the method is demonstrated on a specific architecture of a magnetic garnet thin film coated with a square array of silver nanodisks, supported by a silica substrate. It is shown that enhanced Faraday rotation, driven by hybrid particle plasmon-film quasi-guided collective modes, can be achieved within selected regions of frequency, which can be tuned by properly choosing the geometric and material parameters involved. The results are analyzed in conjunction with numerical simulations by the finite-element method and a consistent interpretation of the underlying physics is provided. Our extended layer-multiple-scattering computational methodology provides a versatile framework for fast and accurate full electrodynamic calculations of magneto-optical structures, enabling physical insight.
