Abstract

In this paper, we explore the use of magnetic resonant metamaterials, so called metamagnetics, as dispersive elements for optical pulse shaping. We measure both positive and negative group delay dispersion (GDD) values in a metamagnetic material using the multiphoton interference phase scan (MIIPS) technique and show pulse temporal profiles numerically. The results are compared with finite element models. These GDD properties of metamagnetics, along with previously shown tunability and loss control with gain media, enable their use in ultrashort pulse optical applications.

Simulated effect of the 136-nm thick metamagnetic material in the time domain using Fourier analysis. Simulation of the effect that a magnetic grating with 136-nm physical thickness of material in the grating lines has on 10-fs and 30-fs ultrafast pulses. The envelopes of the input and output field amplitudes are shown in the left and right panels, respectively. A strong dip with a small broadening in the output pulse can be seen clearly in Panels (b) and (d) for 10-fs and 30-fs input pulses, respectively.

FDTD simulation of an input pulse traveling through a metamagnetic material. (a) The 10fs incident pulse field amplitude. (b) Reflected pulse. (c) The transmitted ‘pulse’ shows a strong dip indicative of a π-phase step near the center of the bandwidth of the pulse. Inset in (c) shows the narrow-band spectrum of the incident pulse (orange) along with the broadband reflectance (blue) and transmittance (red) spectra (colors match those in panels (a)-(c)).
