New original Tamm plasmon-polaritons (TPP) structures with Bi-substituted iron garnet and Au plasmonic layers were proposed, synthesized and investigated. The structures with single and double garnet layers were modelled to form a TPP mode at the center of photonic band gab. The top Au layer has the gradient thickness varied in the range from 0 to 65.2 nm. It was found the features of TPP resonances as a function of the thickness of metal coating. The resonances on TPP have the maximum optical quality factor and transmission at the vicinity of Au thickness of 30 nm. These configurations are optimum to form the highest intensity of electric field of light wave in the area of the magnetic layers. It was found the spectral blue and red shifts of TPP mode with increasing of Au thickness. The blue and red shifts can be explained respectively by structural and thickness changes of Au coating. The maximum resonant values of Faraday rotation were –2.1° at 664 nm and –12.3° at 645 nm for structures with single and double garnet layers, respectively, and thickness of Au coating of 65.2 nm.
