John Kerr's famous communications in the Philosophical Magazine in 1877 and 1878 are revisited, interpreted, and illustrated in terms of a present-day view of Kerr spectroscopy and applications thereof. 
A Revised Model of Photon Resulted by an Etherono-Quantonic Theory of Fields
By an etherono-quantonic theory of the author [1], which deduces that the magnetic field of a magnetic moment is generated by an etherono-quantonic vortex GM = GA GB of etherons and of quantons with
Nature of Light from the Perspective of a Biologist What Is a Photon
The light which makes the plants grow and which gives us warmth has the double characteristics of waves and particles, and is found to exist ultimately of photons. Having carried the analysis of the
Spectral and dynamical measurements using the magneto-optical Kerr efects
The Magneto-Optical Kerr Eect (MOKE) is a powerful tool for studying the magnetic properties of various materials such as thin lm multilayers or magnetic nanostructures. This paper presents the con

This issue collected the articles of some of the leading experts in the area, well garnished with novel approaches and clever ideas by younger colleagues to take a fresh look at this traditional field of Kerr effect.
Ab initio theory of ferromagnetic transition metals and alloys under high pressure
The subject of the present thesis is the investigation of magnetic properties of transition metals and their alloys under high pressure by means of first-principles calculations. First, the results
Kerr Effect
In this work we present a theoretical treatment of the Kerr effect based on third-order nonlinear optical processes. When an intense electric field is placed in a media, a birefringence is induced
Optical Properties of a \theta-Vacuum
Chern-Simons (CS) forms generalize the minimal coupling between gauge potentials and point charges, to sources represented by charged extended objects (branes). The simplest example of such a
Accurate second Kerr virial coefficient of rare gases from the state-of-the-art ab initio potentials and (hyper)polarizabilities
The second Kerr virial coefficient of rare gases is studied in this work using the best ab initio potentials and (hyper)polarizabilities in the literature. The second Kerr virial coefficient of

Reorientation transition in Fe n /Au (100)
Experimental investigations and theoretical magnetic anisotropy energy calculations show a reorientation transition of the magnetization in ${\mathrm{Fe}}_{n}∕\mathrm{Au}(100)$ from a normal-to-plane
The angular dislocation
Abstract The stress field of a sharply angular dislocation is calculated by Burgers' method. It is shown that more complicated configurations may be composed of angular dislocations, and the
