Abstract

We theoretically investigate and optimize a multilayer planar structure with enhanced magneto-optical (MO) activity. The extraordinary optical transmission observed in a periodically perforated metal plate with subwavelength holes is used to produce a higher MO activity. We consider a three-layer structure that consists of a dielectric layer placed between the perforated metal and the MO layers. In this structure, we obtained the enhancement of Faraday rotation by three times and the Kerr effect by an order as compared to the published results.
