Optics in Magnetic Multilayers and Nanostructures
by Stefan Visnovsky

Optics in Magnetic Multilayers and Nanostructures presents an accessible introduction to optics in anisotropic magnetic media.

Features:

  • Presents full, step-by-step derivations of the formulae for optics in anisotropic media
  • Illustrates the basic concepts on media that would be optically isotropic in the absence of magnetization
  • Analyzes the simultaneous effect of crystalline symmetry and arbitrarily oriented magnetization on the form of permittivity
  • Provides necessary information for applications including magnetic microscopy, reading data stored in magnetooptic disks, and magnetooptic light modulation as well as for optical metrology of magnetic materials
