Abstract

The results of our recent studies of magnetization-induced nonlinear-optical second- and third-order effects in magnetophotonic crystals and magnetophotonic microcavities are surveyed. Magnetophotonic crystals (MPCs) are fabricated from a stack of four repetitions of λ/4-thick layers of Bi-substituted yttrium iron garnet (Bi:YIG) and λ/4-thick SiO2 layers. Magnetophotonic microcavities (MMCs) are formed from two dielectric (nonmagnetic) Bragg reflectors and ferromagnetic cavity spacers that are λ/2-thick Bi:YIG layers. The nonlinear magneto-optical Kerr effect (NOMOKE), both in magnetization-induced second-harmonic generation (MSHG) and magnetization-induced third-harmonic generation (MTHG), is observed in MMCs at wavelengths of the resonant microcavity modes. Magnetization-induced variations of MSHG and MTHG intensities, as well as magnetization-induced shift of phase and rotation of polarization of second and third-harmonic waves, are observed in proper—transversal, longitudinal, or polar—NOMOKE configurations. Manyfold enhancement of the absolute values of both the MSHG and MTHG intensities are attributed to the localization of the resonant fundamental radiation in Bi:YIG microcavity spacers. The NOMOKE in MSHG intensity is observed in MPCs in the spectral range of photonic bandgap (PBG) edges. The MSHG intensity reveals enhancement by a factor of more than 102 if the fundamental wavelength is tuned in the vicinity of the PBG edge. This enhancement is attributed to the fulfillment of the phase-matching conditions for MSHG effect in layered structures with periodic modulation of both optical (magneto-optical) and nonlinear optical parameters.
