Abstract

The Kerr reflection and the Faraday transmission relations are calculated for a magnetized slab of homogeneous isotropic material bounded by two nonmagnetic lossless media. Only the electric dipole contributions to optical properties of the media are considered. The light is obliquely incident on the slab and the applied magnetic field is placed in the polar, the longitudinal, and the transverse directions. Calculations for a single pass of the light through the slab are carried out for the transmitted light. The polar and longitudinal Faraday effects for a thin slab are shown to contain a constant term independent of thickness. The first-order transmission effect for a transverse magnetic field is independent of thickness.
