Schematic of a linearly polarized incident wave on an NLC slab. An external electric field has caused the molecules to reorient. The direction of the OA in this case is depicted at the bottom-right corner.
The Kerr rotation angle and the reflectance vs. for the structure for a normally incident light with .
The light intensity within the MPC structure.
The Kerr rotation angle and the reflectance vs. for a beam of light with which is normally incident on the structure .
The general trend in the Kerr rotation (a) and the reflectance (b) for a light beam with which is normally incident on the structure .
Variation of the Kerr ellipticity angle for different values of for a light beam with which is normally incident on the structure . Note the difference between the orders of magnitude of the curves.
The Kerr rotation and maximum values of light intensity around the LC and the magnetic layers. |KR| is the absolute value of the Kerr rotation. Ip stands for the peak value of light intensity around the front (M1) and rear (M2) magnetic layers as well as the LC layer.
