Abstract

We study how the magneto-optical activity in polar configuration of continuous Au/Co/Au trilayers is affected by the excitation of localized plasmon resonances of an array of Au nanodiscs fabricated on top of them over a dielectric SiO2 spacer. We show that the effect of the nanodiscs array is twofold. First, it optimizes the absorption of light at specific photon energies corresponding to the localized surface plasmon excitation of the array, modifying the reflectivity of the system (we define this effect as the purely optical contribution). Second, upon localized plasmon resonance excitation, the electromagnetic field in the whole system is redistributed, and an enhanced magneto-optical activity occurs at those energies where the electromagnetic field in the magnetic layer is increased (this effect is identified as the purely magneto-optical contribution of the nanodiscs array).

Fig. 1.

Sketch of the analyzed structures, consisting of a Au/Co/Au continuous layer with magneto-optical properties separated by a SiO2 spacer of thickness d from a layer of Au nanodiscs sustaining localized surface plasmon resonances. The Au nanodiscs, of diameter D, form a square array of period a.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Extinction spectra of the studied systems, normalized by the transmission signal through the Au/Co/Au/SiO2 continuous layers. (a) Period of the nanodiscs array, a=300 nm and SiO2 layer thickness d variable. (b) SiO2 layer thickness d=50 nm and nanodiscs array period a variable. The nanodiscs diameter is about 110 nm in all cases.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Kerr rotation and ellipticity spectra, in polar configuration (see upper sketch), for a structure with a nanodiscs array period a=300 nm and a SiO2 thickness of 50 nm. The dotted lines correspond to areas of the sample with discs on top of the SiO2/trilayer and the continuous lines to areas without Au discs.

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

(a) Complex Kerr rotation, (b) reflectivity rpp and (c) non-diagonal element of the reflectivity matrix rps determined for the structure with dielectric thickness d=50 nm and array periodicity a=300 nm. The obtained values are normalized to those of the area of the sample without discs on top.

Fig. 5.
Fig. 5.

Non-diagonal element of the reflectivity matrix, rps , for (a) two structures with the same array periodicity (a=300 nm) but different dielectric spacer thickness and (b) for two structures with the same spacer thickness (d=50 nm) but different array periodicity.

Fig. 6.
Fig. 6.

(a) Calculated absorption spectra for a structure with Au nanodiscs array periodicity a=300 nm and different spacer thickness d. (b) Calculated non-diagonal element of the reflectivity matrix for the same system as in (a).

Fig. 7.
Fig. 7.

(a) Non-diagonal element of the reflectivity matrix rps (magneto-optical contribution), for the structure with array periodicity a=300 nm and dielectric thickness dSiO2=50 nm. (b) Calculated distribution of the electromagnetic field inside the Au/Co/Au continuous trilayer for the system with Au discs on top (red dashed line) and without nanodiscs (black solid line) at energy 1.62 eV (position of the maximum magneto-optical enhancement associated with the presence of the discs, rps (discs)/rps (no discs)). (c) Same as in (b) but at energy 1.82 eV (minimum magneto-optical contribution associated with the presence of the discs). (d) Spectral dependence of the ratio of the electromagnetic field inside the Co layer for the continuous SiO2/trilayer system with and without nanodiscs on top. (Note: Calculations are done by substituting the Au nanodiscs array layer by an effective medium layer using the Maxwell- Garnett approximation.)
