Gate-controllable magneto-optic Kerr effect in layered collinear antiferromagnets

17 Oct 2016 Sivadas Nikhil Okamoto Satoshi Xiao Di

Using symmetry arguments and a tight-binding model, we show that for layered collinear anti- ferromagnets, magneto-optic effects can be generated and manipulated by controlling crystal symmetries through a gate voltage. This provides a promising route for electric field manipulation of the magneto-optic effects without modifying the underlying magnetic structure... (read more)
