This book covers the physics of magneto-optical recording, beginning with first principles, and working through to contemporary state-of-the-art topics. The first half of the book teaches the theory of diffraction using an original unified approach. It also covers the optics of multilayers, polarization optics, noise in photodetection, and thermal aspects. The second half of the book describes the basics of magnetism and magnetic materials, magneto-static field calculations, domains and domain walls, the mean-field theory, magnetization dynamics, the theory of coercivity, and the process of thermomagnetic recording. Numerous examples based on real-world problems encountered in the engineering design of magneto-optical media and systems will give the reader valuable insights into the science and technology of optical recording. Extensive problem sets are included.

Book Description:

This book covers the physics of magneto-optical recording, beginning with first principles, and working through to contemporary state-of-the-art topics. It may be used as an advanced textbook on optical recording in both physics and engineering departments, and also as a reference work for scientists and engineers in industrial and academic laboratories.

About the Author:

Masud Mansuripur received a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Arya-Mehr University of Technology in Tehran, Iran (1977), a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University (1978), a Master of Science in Mathematics from Stanford University (1980), and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University (1981). He has been Professor of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona since 1988. His areas of research include: optical data storage, optical signal processing, magneto-optical properties of thin magnetic films, radiation pressure, interaction of light with sub-wavelength structures, and the optical and thermal characterization of thin films and stacks. A Fellow of the Optical Society of America, he has published more than 250 papers in various technical journals, holds eight patents, has given numerous invited talks at international scientific conferences, and has been a contributing editor of Optics & Photonics News, the magazine of the Optical Society of America. Professor Mansuripur's published books include Introduction to Information Theory (1987) and The Physical Principles of Magneto-optical Recording (1995).
