A Generalized Treatment of Magneto Optical Transmission Filters
US Air Force Academy Air Force Academy United States
Pagination or Media Count:
This work has constructed a model for the theoretical analysis of generalized magneto-optical transmission GMOT filters for any relative angle between the light beam and the applied magnetic field. This model was experimentally validated and shows good agreement between the theoretical predictions and the experimental spectra. In addition, the value of examining magneto-optical filters for arbitrary angle cases was demonstrated by revealing an optimized filter with an equivalent noise bandwidth of 0.56 GHz which is approximately a factor of two better than those previously reported.
