Magnetooptical properties of the materials with periodically modulated dielectric constant – photonic crystals (or band-gap materials) have been examined with relation to their possible applications for the control of electromagnetic radiation in the integrated optics devices. For this investigation we propose the original theoretical approach based on the perturbation theory. Magnetooptical Faraday and Voigt effects have been studied near extremum points of photonic bands where their significant enhancement takes place. On the grounds of the elaborated theory some experimental results are discussed. Experimentally obtained Faraday rotation angle frequency dependence shows good agreement with our theoretical predictions.
