Abstract

The ellipsometric parameters for light reflection from a dielectric film with Kerr optical nonlinearity on a bigyrotropic magneto-electric film are theoretically investigated. The combined contributions of cubic optical nonlinearity and magneto-electric coupling allow us to control the ellipsometric parameters and thus, for example, the Kerr rotation with the incoming light intensity, in particular at incidence angles close to the pseudo-Brewster angle.
