In much the same way that semiconductor crystals affect the propagation of electrons, photonic crystals (periodic composites of macroscopic dielectric media of different refractive index) affect the propagation of light, providing a new mechanism to control and manipulate the flow of light. When the constitutive material of PCs is magnetic, or even only a defect introduced into the periodic structure is magnetic, the resultant PCs (let us simply refer to as magnetophotonic crystals (MPCs) hereafter) exhibit unique optical and magneto-optical responses: The strong photon confinement associated with the magnetic defect can be exploited to enhance and optimize magneto-optical (MO) effects and optical non-linearity of existing materials.
