The optical 2nd-harmonic intensity generated by magnetic multilayers appears to depend strongly on the magnetization. Combining interface and magnetic sensitivity, magnetization-induced optical 2nd-harmonic generation provides a unique tool to study magnetic interface properties. The underlying theor. anal. is given and illustrated with an example and expts. on Co/Au multilayers. [on SciFinder (R)]
