RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

Check out our latest publications on magnetoplasmonic couplers

We have studied the magneto-optic responses of magnetoplasmonic couplers in a variety of platforms, including commercial digital disks. Our study reveals pathways to exploit enhanced optical functionality, of potential interest for other nanophotonic devices, such as metasurfaces.

Unexpected large transverse magneto-optic Kerr effect at quasi-normal incidence in magnetoplasmonic crystals, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jmmm.2018.12.036

Our group has collaborated in a study published in Nature Physics about a “Giant topological Hall Effect”

The study, led by the group of Manuel Bibes, from Unité Mixte de Physique CNRS/Thales (France), published in Nature Physics on October 15, 2018, describes the discovery of a giant topological Hall effect arising from the topology of spatial distribution of spin textures.
