Magneto-optic polar Kerr and Faraday effects in periodic multilayers.


Magnetooptic (MO) effects in magnetic multilayers with periodically stratified regions are analyzed for the case of normal light wave incidence and polar magnetization (Faraday and polar Kerr effects). From the universal 4 x 4-matrix formalism simplified analytical representations restricted to terms linear in the off-diagonal permittivity tensor elements… (More)
