This book merges theoretical and experimental works initiated in 1997 from consideration of periodical artificial dielectric structures comprising magneto-optical materials. Modern advances in magnetophotonics are discussed giving theoretical analyses and demonstrations of the consequences of light interaction with non-reciprocal media of various designs. This first collection of foundational works is devoted to light-to-artificial magnetic matter phenomena and related applications. The subject covers the physical background and the continuing research in the field of magnetophotonics.
Gives a survey of the state of the art of research of magneto-optical materials Presents light-to-artificial magnetic matter phenomena Covers the application of magneto-optics and magnetophotonics Contains contributions from leaders in the field
