The developments in nanophotonics demand more efficient and delicate control of light. It has recently been proposed to achieve this goal by combining plasmonics and magneto-optics in so-called magnetoplasmonic nanostructures. However, significant challenges still remain because of the difficulty in the design of spectrally tunable systems exhibiting novel plasmonic and magneto-optical responses simultaneously. Here Chen and his colleagues report a magnetoplasmonic structure which consists of a two-dimensional nickel nanodisk array on top of a cobalt film substrate. They demonstrate that a tunable Fano resonance can be generated in this system with properly designed geometric parameters. Furthermore, the magneto-optical Kerr responses in this system can be manipulated due to the concerted actions of free electrons in the resonance. Their results reveal the possibility of fabricating large-area magnetoplasmonic structures by a simple, mass-producible method, and tuning the plasmonic and magneto-optical responses simultaneously.
