  1. 1. Magnetoplasmonic nanostructures

    Author : Emil Melander; Vassilios Kapaklis; Björgvin Hjörvarsson; Evangelos Th. Papaioannou; Paolo Vavassori; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Magnetism; nanostructures; plasmons; magneto-optics; magnetoplasmonics; Physics with spec. in Atomic; Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics; Fysik med inriktning mot atom- molekyl- och kondenserande materiens fysik;

    Abstract : Surfaces that are nanopatterned, metallic, and magnetic can support surface plasmon resonances, providing an alternative and effective way to reconfigure flat optical components. Utilising a range of near- and far-field characterisation techniques, the optical and magneto-optical properties of lithographically patterned thin magnetic films are investigated. READ MORE

    Abstract : Ultrafast dynamical processes in magnetic systems have become the subject of intense research during the last two decades, initiated by the pioneering discovery of femtosecond laser-induced demagnetization in nickel. In this thesis, we develop theory for fast and ultrafast magnetization dynamics. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Influence of Interlayer Exchange Coupling on Magnetic Ordering in Fe-based Heterostructures

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Martin Pärnaste; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Physics; magnetism; magnetic dimensionality; MOKE; magneto-optics; hydrogen loading; phase transitions; Fysik;

    Abstract : Temperature dependent magnetization measurements were conducted on Fe-based heterostructures. A linear increase of the magnetic critical temperature with increasing Fe thickness was found for Fe/V superlattices with strong interlayer exchange coupling. READ MORE

    Abstract : Materials that provide real-time control of the fundamental properties of light at visible and near-infrared frequencies enable the essential components for future optical devices. Metal nanostructures that couple electromagnetic (EM) radiation on a sub-wavelength length scale to free electrons, forming propagating or localized surface plasmons, provide many exciting functionalities due to their ability to manipulate light via the local EM field shaping and enhancement.
