Abstract
This thesis focuses on the study of the electromagnetic properties of active spinplasmonic artificial materials. Artificial materials are composites having a macroscopic electromagnetic response that arises due to electromagnetic and electronic interactions between subwavelength sized elements. They are of practical engineering interest due to the wide range of free parameters such as the size, shape, density, and orientation of the individual elements, among others, thus providing the means to produce highly customizable photonic components. The thesis work can be categorized into four major sections: the design and construction of an advanced terahertz system capable of probing the electromagnetic response of such materials, the development of a class of artificial materials that permits the active, spin-dependent tuning of the position dependent phase accumulation of terahertz radiation, the study of spintronic-plasmonic artificial materials, and the discovery of a loss reduction mechanism for terahertz pulses transmitted through dense ensembles of bimetallic particles.
