Paper Abstract

In this paper the results of our recent studies of the Magnetization-induced second- and third-harmonic generation in magnetophotonic crystals and magnetophotonic microcavities are surveyed. Nonlinear magneto-optical Kerr effect (NOMOKE) both in magnetization-induced secondharmonic generation (MSHG) and magnetization-induced third-harmonic generation (MTHG) is observed in garnet MMC at wavelengths of the resonant microcavity modes. Magnetization-induced variations of MSHG and MTHG intensity as well as magnetization-induced shift of phase and rotation of polarization of second-harmonic and third-harmonic waves are observed. Nonlinear magneto-optical Kerr effect in MSHG intensity is observed in garnet magnetophotonic crystals in the spectral range of photonic band gap (PBG) edges of MPC. The MSHG intensity reveals enhancement by a factor of more than 102 if the fundamental wavelength is tuned in the vicinity of the PBG edge. This enhancement is attributed to the fulfilment of the phase matching conditions in layered structures.
