Abstract

Rare-earth iron garnet films with in-plane magnetic anisotropy grown on [111]-oriented substrates are promising for the visualization of magnetic leakage fields in nondestructive evaluation. Such magneto-optical films have to be specifically engineered, and we give an example of this technology. To assess the validity and accuracy of finite-element calculations of a magnetization assembly combined with the physical modeling of the image formation, comparisons between calculated and experimentally obtained magneto-optical images of metal-loss defects have been made. A convincing quantitative agreement is demonstrated. It is shown that both physical and computer modeling techniques allow for a predictive engineering design of the prospective applications and provide greater insight into the method.
