Paper Abstract

Extrinsic and intrinsic nonlinear magneto-optics are introduced through the use of layered structures. Longitudinal magneto-optic configurations are selected to promote the maximum coupling of field components. In the extrinsic calculations, linear magneto-optic layers are deployed with varying degrees of complexity in structures that have components that can become optically nonlinear. The properties of spatial solutions are investigated theoretically using a Lagrangian variational procedure. Interesting arrangements are discussed for general polarization interaction based on a magnetic field distribution that varies both along and transversely t the propagation direction. Finally, intrinsic nonlinear magneto- optics is briefly discussed, which uses a photoinduced nonlinear Faraday effect.
