Zheludev, N.I., Brummell, M.A., Harley, R.T., Malinowski, A., Popov, S.V., Ashenford, D.E. and Lunn, B. (1994) Giant specular inverse Faraday-effect in Cd 0.6 Mn 0.4 Te Solid State Communications, 89, (10), pp. 823-825. (doi:10.1016/0038-1098(94)90064-7).

Record type: Article


Observation of the non-resonant Specular Inverse Faraday Effect (SIFE) in Cd0.6Mn0.4Te is reported. With picosecond circularly polarised pump and linearly polarised probe pulses at 532nm the pump-induced rotation of the reflected probe polarization plane was found to be approximately one order of magnitude stronger than in GaAs and reaches 3.5x10-2 deg with a pump intensity of 5 MW cm-2.
