Paper Abstract

We have considered a stratified periodic structure, consisting of any quantity of elementary cells, placed in an external magnetic field. Using boundary conditions for waves in each layer, we have calculated a matrix, which connects an incident wave to transmitted and reflected waves. Through elements of this matrix the complex coefficients of transmission and reflection of waves for al layered structure were expressed. We have calculated the optimum parameters of the structure, consisting of layers of KDP and Eu-glass. We have obtained the dependences of intensity, ellipticity and angle of turn of a main axis of polarization ellipse of reflected and transmitted waves on quantity of cells, on frequency of light and on a magnetic field strength.
