Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


It is shown that for existent natural materials the Faraday rotation is far below the theoretical limit [Steel et al. in J. Lightwave Technol. 18:1297, 2000]. Under this condition the value of the Faraday rotation is primarily determined by the Q-factor, while the low group velocity value, multipass traveling and energy concentration in magneto-optical material play a secondary role. A comparative analysis of the efficiency of different schemes employing defect modes, Tamm surface states, the Borrmann effect and plasmon resonance is presented.
