Magnetic and magneto-optical properties of MnBi films doped with rare earth (RE) elements (RE equals Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Tb, Dy, and Ho) have been studied. It was found that MnBiRE (RE equals Ce, Pr, and Sm) films have larger Kerr rotation angle than that of MnBiRE (Nd, Tb, Dy, and Ho) films. When the RE component doped is in the range from x equals 0.02 to 0.25, the Kerr rotation angle can reach from 2 degree(s) to approximately 2.5 degree(s) at the wavelength 633 nm and zero magnetic field at room temperature. Large enhancement of Kerr effect can be explained by using the inter-band transition of the 3d - 6p electrons in MnBiRE alloys.
