MULTIPLE REFLECTION EFFECTS IN THE THEORY OF THE FARADAY EFFECT AND ELLIPTICITY FOR PROPAGATION THROUGH THREE DISTINCT MEDIA.
B. Donovan and T. Medcalf formulated the theory of the free-carrier Faraday effect in semiconductors for a vacuum-medium-vacuum, taking into account multiple internal reflections of the electromagnetic radiation in the medium. Here, Donovan and Medcalf's results are generalized to the case of three distinct media and also extend their analysis in the sense of obtaining a unique decomposition of the multiple pass rotation THETA which gives added physical insight into the various contributions to THETA . The multiple pass ellipticity DELTA is similarly treated. An alternate and simpler method of carrying out the calculations is presented.
