Abstract

We present an electrodynamical model of a quantum plasmonic device—the magneto-optical (MO) spaser. It is shown that a spherical gain nanoparticle coated with a metallic MO shell can operate as a spaser amplifying circularly polarized surface plasmons. The MO spaser may be used in design of an optical isolator in plasmonic transmission lines as well as in spaser spectrometry of chiral molecules.
