Paper Abstract

The non-reciprocity of magneto-optical reflection response by surface plasmon excitation in the planar Au/Fe/Au/glass nano-systems with prism coupling is studied. These structures are intended as magnetic field sensor units combining magneto-optical (MO) and surface-plasmon-resonance (SPR) effects. The ability of MO-SPR systems to magnetic field sensing is analysed using incidence-angle-depending response function (Rpp (+) – Rpp (-))/(Rpp (+) + Rpp (-)), where Rpp denotes the reflectance of p-polarized beam; and, the sign in upper index relates to the orientation of external magnetic field. The proposed sensitivity criteria F and K (the magnitude and inflexed tangent of the response function oscillation) are applied in transverse MO configuration. Mathematical model based on the own matrix algorithm is applied to simulate the diffraction response to varying external magnetic field at the wavelength 632.8 nm. Obtained theoretical results are compared with experiments realized using the measuring device Multiskop (Optrel GbR, Germany).
