Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Magneto-plasmonic functionalities using dielectric, ferromagnetic/ferrimagnetic, and the semiconductor material is a rapidly growing field with great potential for practical applications. It involves the interaction of magneto-optic materials such as nanoparticles, magnetic metamaterial, photonic crystals and grating structures on magnetic media, and ferromagnetic and ferrimagnetic multilayer structures with the optical radiation and external magnetic fields at various wavelengths ranging from visible to infra-red. Depending on the dimension of the structure and interaction with the optical radiation, the field is classified as localized surface plasmon (LSP) or propagating surface plasmon (PSP). The LSP structures include varying sizes (holes, patterns, nanoparticles) each ranging from 1 to 100 nm, structures smaller than the wavelength of the optical radiation.

On the other hand, PSP structures include more extended sizes of LSP structures where the dimension of the structure is larger than the wavelength of the optical radiation. When tuned, both types of nanostructures demonstrate unique optical, electrical, and magnetic/magneto-optic properties that are in direct relationship to their size, shape, and surface chemistry. Because of these properties, magneto-optical materials are being extensively investigated for a possible application in medicine for sensing/diagnosing and treating diseases and with a potential to expand to other areas such as environmental monitoring, surveying, imaging, and many more to come.

The purpose of this special issue is to highlight the recent advances in the field of magnetoplasmonics. Topics covered include but not limited to:

  • Theory and principle of magnetoplasmonics
  • Theory and principle of magneto-optic surface plasmon resonance
  • Synthesis of magnetoplasmonic core-shell nano-structured materials
  • Theoretical modelling of magnetoplasmonics material
  • Characterization of magnetoplasmonic materials
  • Oxide and inverse spinel material-based magnetoplasmonics hybrid nanostructures
  • Magnetoplasmonic nanocomposites, nanoparticles and nanocrystalline materials
  • Si-based materials and magnetoplasmonics
  • Magnetoplasmonic material-based biosensors, nanofluidic and nanofabrication
  • Magnetoplasmonics and nanobiotechnology/nanobiomaterials and nanomedicine
  • Magneto-optic surface plasmon resonance biosensors and potential applications
  • Magnetoplasmonics materials for environmental monitoring, surveying, and imaging
  • Photonic crystal based magnetoplasmonic devices
  • Graphene-based magnetoplasmonic materials and devices

In this editorial, a brief background of the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) principle is discussed, followed by several aspects of magneto-optic SPR (MOSPR) and sensing schemes from the viewpoint of fundamental studies and potential technological applications. New sensitivity metrics are introduced that would allow researchers to compare the performance of SPR and MOSPR-based sensors. Merits of MOSPR over SPR based sensors and challenges faced by MOSPR sensors in terms of their practical use and portability are also considered. The editorial ends with potential new configurations and future prospects. This work is considered highly significant to device engineers, graduate and undergraduate students, and researchers of all levels involved in developing new classes of bio-devices for sensing, imaging, environmental monitoring, toxic gas detection, and surveying applications to name a few.

Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensors based on transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC) materials have shown improved performance in terms of sensitivity, detection accuracy (DA), and quality factor (QF) over conventional biosensors. In this paper, we propose a five-layers model containing black phosphorus (BP) and TMDC (Ag/BP/WS2) in Kretschmann configuration. Using TM-polarized light at 633 nm, we numerically demonstrate the highest sensitivity (375°/RIU), DA (0.9210), and QF (65.78 1/RIU) reported so far over similar materials. Refractive index (RI) of the coupling prism has also played an essential role in enhancing the performance of these biosensors. The research on TMDC materials is still new, and these materials bring about opportunities to develop a new class of biosensor. Full article
