Topological magnetoelectric effects in microwave farfield radiation
Abstract
Similar to electromagnetism, described by the Maxwell equations, the physics of magnetoelectric (ME) phenomena deals with the fundamental problem of the relationship between electric and magnetic fields. Despite a formal resemblance between the two notions, they concern effects of different natures. In general, MEcoupling effects manifest in numerous macroscopic phenomena in solids with space and time symmetry breakings. Recently, it was shown that the near fields in the proximity of a small ferrite particle with magneticdipolarmode (MDM) oscillations have the space and time symmetry breakings and the topological properties of these fields are different from the topological properties of the freespace electromagnetic fields. Such MDMoriginated fields—called magnetoelectric (ME) fields—carry both spin and orbital angular momenta. They are characterized by powerflow vortices and nonzero helicity. In this paper, we report on observation of the topological ME effects in farfield microwave radiation based on a small microwave antenna with a MDM ferrite resonator. We show that the microwave farfield radiation can be manifested with a torsion structure where an angle between the electric and magnetic field vectors varies. We discuss the question on observation of the regions of localized ME energy in farfield microwave radiation.
