The magneto-optical Kerr microscope is used, with the help of the magneto-optical Kerr effect, to image magnetic domains. If linearly polarized light is radiated onto a magnetic solid, the magnetization influences the polarization state of the reflected light. After reflection, the light is generally elliptically polarized.
