Abstract
The electronic, magnetic and magneto-optical properties of Co overlayers on Pd (1 1 1) substrate have been investigated by ab initio band structure calculations within the spin-polarized relativistic linear muffin-thin orbitals (LMTO) method and supercell approach. The role of the Co-Pd interface structure, the number of the Co atomic layers ( nCo ), as well as the spin-orbit interaction and induced Pd spin polarization, in formation of magneto-optical response of the structures for [ nCoCo/Pd (1 1 1)] system is shown. The sign reversal of the polar Kerr rotation obtained theoretically with decreasing thickness of Co overlayers agrees well with experiment. We will demonstrate the effectiveness of the extended numeric modeling of magneto-optical properties from first principles.
