Localized radiative energy transfer from a near-field emitter to a magnetic thin film structure is investigated. A magnetic thin film stack is placed in the near-field of the plasmonic nanoantenna to utilize the evanescent mode coupling between the nanoantenna and magnetic thin film stack. A bow-tie nano-optical antenna is excited with a tightly focused beam of light to improve near-field radiative energy transfer from the antenna to the magnetic thin film structure. A tightly focused incident optical beam with a wide angular spectrum is formulated using Richards-Wolf vector field equations. Radiative energy transfer is investigated using a frequency domain 3-D finite element method solution of Maxwell’s equations. Localized radiative energy transfer between the near-field emitter and the magnetic thin film structure is quantified for a given optical laser power at various distances between the near-field emitter and magnetic thin film.
