    Experimental and theoretical studies of light coupling to various magnetic nanostructured media and nanocomposites are briefly reported. Enhancement of the magneto-optical response is shown to occur when the constitutive materials of photonic crystals are magnetic. Transmission and reflection types of ID magnetophotonic crystals (MPCs) have been studied. New possibility to enhance the magneto-optical response has been found when utilizing localized surface plasmon resonances in bismuth-substituted yttrium iron garnet (Bi:YIG) films impregnated with Au nanoparticles. Examples of integrated optic devices are discussed in which functional elements are ID and 2D magnetophotonic crystals.
