Abstract

The optical properties of materials are universally described within the electric dipole (ED) approximation—atomic-scale optical frequency light-matter interactions are assumed to arise solely from electric dipoles interacting with the electric field component of light. In fact, this inability of matter to interact with the magnetic-field component of light led to the advent of metamaterials and metasurfaces. In this talk, I describe my group’s recent discovery of atomic-scale optical magnetism in 2D Layered Hybrid Organic/Inorganic Pervoskites (2D HOIPs). First, I detail our use of momentum-resolved optical spectroscopy to demonstrate magnetic dipole (MD) light emission originating from self-trapped excitons [1,2]. I conclude by showing that 2D HOIPs are the only known materials to exhibit non-unity optical frequency magnetic permeabilities [3].
