Abstract

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 2 X 2 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.
