Abstract

Calculated and experimentally determined plane-of-polarization rotation curves are presented that demonstrate that magneto-optical properties of transitions between degenerate energy levels may be used to design low-loss components for laser systems over the uv to far-ir spectral region. For devices such as optical rotators and modulators, magneto-optical properties of discrete-energy-level transitions offer significant advantages over bulk properties that are used in conventional designs.
