Magneto-Optic Study of Picosecond Magnetization Dynamics in Garnet Films
Magneto-optical system for the study of nano- and picosecond magnetization dynamics in garnet films by using Faraday or Kerr effects is presented. Time resolution of the system is determined by the duration of the laser pulses (10 ps) and the response time of the photo-detectors (30 ps).
