Work Package A: Task 4

Calculation of magneto-optical effects which may be used as a tool to examine the structure and symmetry-related phenomena in magnetic materials.

Within this task, we wish to study linear and non-linear magneto-optical effects, such as Faraday and Kerr rotations, magnetic linear dichroism as well as the second harmonic generation. These effects are important tools for probing the magnetic, electronic, and crystallographic properties of magnetic materials. The magnetic linear dichroism is sensitive to the square of magnetization and might be used to probe the magnetic structure of AFMs.
