Abstract

A novel interference enhanced magnetooptic multilayered memory structure with a birefringent superstrate that converts incident linear polarization to rotated linear polarization on reflection is introduced. This structure employs a birefringent superstrate; several different ways of implementing a birefringnet superstrate are proposed. The structure is analyzed using a rigorous method described previously [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 4, 1720 ( 1987)]. The reflection characteristics of the structure as functions of incident angle are given.
