    We demonstrate the enhancement of magnetic dipole spontaneous emission from Eu 3+ ions by an engineered plasmonic nanostructure that controls the electromagnetic environment of the emitter. Using an optical microscope setup, an enhancement in the intensity of the Eu 3+ magnetic dipole emission was observed for emitters located in close vicinity to a gold nanohole array designed to support plasmonic resonances overlapping with the emission spectrum of the ions.
