In this paper we present the configurations of two nanometer scale structures—one of them optically controllable and the second one magnetically controllable. The first involves an array of nanoparticles that are made up of two layers (i.e., Au on top of a Si layer). The device may exhibits a wide range of plasmonic resonance according to external photonic radiation. The second type of device involves the usage of sub micron superparamagnetic particles located on a suitable structuring grid, that according to the angle of the external magnetic field allows control of the length of the structuring grid and therefore control the diffraction order of each wavelength.
