Abstract


We have studied experimentally and numerically linear and nonlinear magnetooptical properties in the arrays of aligned Ni nanorods. We demonstrate that the spectra of magneto-optical and nonlinear magneto-optical Kerr effects are found to be amplified in the vicinity of the resonant excitation of plasmonic modes related to Ni nanorods. The observed high sensitivity of magneto-optics and nonlinear magneto-optics to plasmonic properties maybe
advantageous for diagnostics of plasmonic excitation in magnetic nanostructures.
