Paper Abstract

Theoretical considerations have been realized by using a matrix method and by investigating a magneto-optical crystal under simultaneous influence of two magnetic fields: the first one, parallel to the direction of the light propagation (Faraday configuration); and the second one orthogonal (Cotton-Mouton configuration). An experiment confirms theoretical expectations, namely the possibility of extending the isolation magnitude by parallel arrangement of transmission axis of the input polarizer to the birefringence axis.
