Abstract

Several combinations of incident polarization and detection schemes suitable for direct detection of transitions in magneto-optical disk systems are described. One such combination uses a circularly polarized light with a single split detector in the far field. Another scheme uses linear polarization in conjunction with differential detection. In the first scheme the medium must be optimized for Kerr rotation while the second method requires maximum ellipticity.
