Title: Study and application of surface plasmons in terahertz spectral range Author: Peter Darebník Department: Department of Chemical Physics and Optics Supervisor: doc. RNDr. Petr Kužel, Dr., department of Chemical Physics and Optics - external employee Abstract: The goal of this thesis is analytical, numerical and experimental study of surface plasmons in terahertz spectral range The description of the surface plasmon propagation along metal/dielectric interface can be done purely analytically. Our goal is to obtain the description of the surface plasmon propagating in more complex dielectric layered structures which are in contact with metallic layer. Analysis of the surface plasmon dispersion curves in anisotropic layered structure was done numerically. Existing transmission terahertz spectroscopy experiment was expanded by an arrangement that allows us to excite the surface plasmon on the metallic layer and allows us to measure its characteristics after the transmission of samples, that are in contact with this layer. Obtained theoretical and experimental data were then evaluated, so we could conclude to which extent can the surface plasmon be used for spectroscopic purposes in terahertz range. We concluded, that we were able to describe surface plasmons in layered structures including anisotropic...

Title: Magnetic nanostructures for recording and optical sensors Author: Eva Lišková Department: Institute of Physics, Charles University Supervisor: Prof. Ing. Štefan Višňovský, DrSc. Abstract: Magneto-optical (MO) spectra of multilayered structures with enhanced MO effect were studied using the polar and longitudinal Kerr spectroscopy with oblique angle of light incidence in the photon energy range 1.2 eV to 5 eV. The samples with Fabry- Perot cavity like architecture, were modeled using Yeh matrix formalism. Two sets of samples, with composition FeF2/Fe/FeF2 and AlN/Fe/AlN, were prepared by molecular beam epitaxy and sputtering. The relations were studied between the position of the enhanced peak in the MO spectra and the structure. Second part of this work was devoted to the Pt/Co/Pt structures and the influence of the ion implantation on MO spectra and structural composition. The studied multilayer structures present interest for MO sensor and memory applications. Keywords: Magneto-optical Kerr effect, Magneto-optical sensor, Fabry-Perot resonator, Ion implantation
Spin dynamics in GaAs-based semiconductor structures
Schmoranzerová, Eva ; Němec, Petr (advisor) ; Postava, Kamil (referee) ; Kužel, Petr (referee)
This work is dedicated to the study of spin dynamics in systems based on the semiconductor gallium arsenide (GaAs) that are suitable for use in spintronic devices. We explored two types of model structures using experimental methods of ultrafast laser spectroscopy and transport measurements. In the ferromagnetic semiconductor (Ga,Mn)As, we investigated laser-induced magnetization precession. We found out that transfer of both energy and angular momentum from the circularly polarized laser light can trigger magnetization precession, the latter one being identified as a new phenomenon, the "optical spin transfer torque". Furthermore, we demonstrate the possibility to control the energy-transfer-induced magnetization dynamics both optically and electrically using piezo-stressing. When dealing with purely non-magnetic structures for spintronics, we studied the Spin-Injection Hall Effect (SIHE) in GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures with a special type of spin- orbit (SO) coupling that are lithographically patterned to create nanodevices. We managed to observe precession of the electron spin in the SO field directly in the space domain by extending the original detection method. This finding, together with the direct detection of a pure spin current, helped to propose a working spin Hall effect transistor.
Magnetooptical spectroscopy of La2/3Sr1/3MnO3 ultrathin films
Zahradník, Martin ; Veis, Martin (advisor) ; Postava, Kamil (referee)
High quality La2/3Sr1/3MnO3 (LSMO) ultrathin layers are of interest for applications in magnetic sensors and spintronic devices due to colossal magnetoresistance of these materials. LSMO films studied in this thesis were grown by pulsed laser deposition on SrTiO3 substrates. The deposition at low oxygen pressures with the use of a beam homogenizer leads to the high quality LSMO films. The film thickness ranges from 5,0 to 103,9 nm. Magnetooptical (MO) spectrometer based on azimuth modulation was used and spectra of MO Kerr effect in polar and longitudinal configuration were obtained. All the spectra display features typical for LSMO films, including the thinnest 5 nm thick film. MO Kerr effect observed in this film reflects high magnetic ordering even at such low thickness. All the spectra manifest high quality of the LSMO films prepared with the use of the beam homogenizer.
