Summary

The course includes basic principles of linear and quadratic magneto-optic effects, description of magneto-optic tensors, modeling of magneto-optic effects in reflection and transmission from multilayer structures, magneto- optics of periodic structures and photonic crystals, and non-linear magneto- optics. Interest is focused on applications in magneto-optic recording, application of magneto-optical vector magnetometry in magnetism, Kerr microscopy for observation of magnetic domains, magneto-optic sensors of magnetic field and electric current, and magneto-optic isolators for telecommunications.
