Hysteresis loops and anisotropy energy constants are measured in a magneto-optical system that combines Kerr rotation and ellipticity to enhance signal strength. Temperature dependence of the polar Kerr effect is compared with the magnetization of the iron subnetwork in the mean-field approximation and good agreement is obtained. Perpendicular magnetic anisotropy is studied by magneto-optical methods, yielding the first two coefficients of the series expansion of anisotropy energy in terms of the angle of deviation from the easy axis.
