Paper Abstract

The theoretical analysis of second-order magneto-optical effects is presented. A material anisotropy is introduced by relative permittivity tensor whose components are expressed using Voigt magneto-optical parameter Q and Lissberger's parameter f. The permeability corresponds to isotropic medium. Three principal configurations are studied according to the magnetization-transversal, polar and longitudinal. The governing wave equation for the field vector leads to four polarization states described by complex polarization vectors. Their components have been derived in closed form. The eignemode polarization states in planar structures with magnetic ordering for the classical materials applied for magneto-optical media are analyzed in detail.
