Magneto-Optical Effects in Excitonic One-Dimensional Structures
We present results of a theoretical investigation of magneto-optical properties in one-dimensional magnetophotonic crystals containing a quantum well defect. In contrast to garnet based magnetophotonic crystals, our proposed structures can be tuned not only by the magnetic field but also by the electric field, illumination, and irradiation. The developed algorithm can be applied to arbitrary magneto-optical effects in multiple quantum well periodic structures. Using this algorithm we demonstrate that the Fabry-Perot exciton resonator structure significantly enhances the Faraday effect and can be used as a highly efficient modulator of light.
