Abstract

The effective optical and magneto-optical constants of a series of Cu/Co multilayer films are determined experimentally and compared with a theoretical thin-film model based on the bulk optical constants of Cu and Co. In the multilayer series, the atomic percentages of Cu and Co were kept fixed and the period varied from 0.4 to 13.6 nm. Deviations from bulk-like behavior in the effective optical constants are observed for multilayers with periods less than 3 nm.
