Abstract:

A computer model for evaluating the optical and magneto-optical scattering from a multilayer magnetic-dielectric thin film structure is described. The model handles the Faraday effect in the magnetic layer as well as all three magnetic Kerr effects transverse, polar, and longitudinal at its interfaces. This model should serve as a useful design tool for magnetic bias ring laser gyro mirrors and typical results are shown for this application. Author
