Abstract

We present the technology of nanoperforated magnetic structures based on cobalt films deposited onto the surface of a porous aluminum substrate. The structures exhibit a significant (by an order of magnitude) enhancement of the transversal magnetooptical Kerr effect as compared to that in magnetic thin films formed on a usual nonporous substrate. The effect increases with the depth of pores.
