Propagation of Electromagnetic Waves and Magnetooptics

  • Peter Grosse
Part of the Nato Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 60)


The general aim of magnetooptics is to analyze in the presence of magnetic fields the structure of elementary excitations of matter (phonons, excitons, plas-mons etc.) by the use of electromagnetic waves as a probe. Similarly, in the case of magnetooptical applications, such as magnetooptical devices, the effect of a static magnetic field on the propagation mechanism of electromagnetic waves is used.
