Abstract [en]

Research on magneto-optical photonic crystals has so far been focused on theoretical investigations, because suitable multilayers of iron garnet, the most promising material, have not been readily available. We report the preparation and characterization of a one-dimensional magneto-optical photonic crystal composed of 17 heteroepitaxial layers of bismuth iron garnet and yttrium iron garnet. The magneto-optical Faraday rotation was increased by 140% while transmission decreased by just 16% at the design wavelength of 750 nm as compared with a single-layer bismuth iron garnet film of equivalent thickness. The sample is free of cracks, and good agreement of simulated and experimental spectra of optical transmission and Faraday rotation indicate high quality of the sample and robustness of the preparation technique.
