AbstractHybrid platforms combining metallic plasmonic nanoantennas (NAs) and materials with interesting properties as phase-change or spintronics offer excellent technological opportunities for active plasmonics, as they can provide large changes in their optical response. In this talk I will demostrate first how gold NAs grown on vanadium dioxie (VO2), characterized by a reversible insulator-to-metal transition (IMT) at around 68ºC, can improve the performance of this material by providing an efficient enhancement mechanism for both the optically induced excitation and readout. Using picosecond laser pulses a highly localized phase transition is driven in nanoscale regions around the NAs. These antennas-VO2 hybrid solutions provide a conceptual framework to merge field localization and phase transition enabling nanoscale optical memory functionalities. In the second part I will show how the combination of Au microantenna arrays with a Ni81Fe19/Au multilayer supports provide metamaterial platforms with new functionalities. In this case, the plasmon resonance sustained by the NAs alliate with the GMR and MRE effects of the multilayer to allow low magnetic-field controlled modulation in the mid-infrared, where light modulation is very challenging. This approach establishes a roadmap for spintronically-controlled devices in the whole mid-IR to THz band.
