Transmission of Non-polarized (Natural) Light by One-Dimensional Magneto-Optical Resonator Structures
The article presents the theoretical studies of the optical properties of such metamaterials as the One-Dimensional Magneto-Optical Resonator Structures. An interaction between non-polarized (natural) light and a magneto-optical resonator structure in a magnetic field was investigated theoretically. The presented theoretical approach is based on matrix multiple-beam summation, taking into account both the phase difference and the difference in polarization direction caused by the Faraday rotation. Attention was paid to the transmission peculiarities of the One-Dimensional Resonator Structures with isotropic zero-field magneto-optic medium inside them. Both spectral and angular distributions of a natural light transmitted through the One-Dimensional Resonator Structure in a magnetic field were investigated. As a result of research, it has been found that, despite the stereotyped view, the magneto-optical rotation of non-polarized light clearly manifests itself in the above optical characteristics of the Resonator Structures. This is explained by the fact that the Faraday rotation changes the conditions of the multiple-beam interference of light inside the Structure. This leads to changes in the interference patterns of the spectral and angular distributions of transmitted natural light and also to the appearance of interference effects for p-polarized part of the light whose reflection coefficient is equal to zero. The results can be used to create new controllable optical devices, for investigation of Faraday-active material properties and for control of parameters of plane-parallel layers and structures.
