"Longitudinal Kerr effect in ultrathin Fe films on Pd(100)";
Physical Review B,
(Received 4 June 2004; published 10 November 2004)
Based on Luttinger`s formulation the complex optical conductivity tensor of ultrathin films of Fe on Pd(100)
is calculated by means of the spin-polarized relativistic screened Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker method using a
contour integration technique. For longitudinal geometry and oblique incidence ab initio Kerr spectra are then
obtained via a 232 matrix technique that takes into account all multiple reflections between layers and optical
interferences. The obtained results are in very good agreement with the available experimental data.
