Describes the development of a mirror cavity to improve the signal to noise ratio of the measurement of the magnetic circular dichroism of the absorption (MCDA) and of the MCDA-detected electron paramagnetic resonance. Application of the Jones matrix formalism for an ideal mirror and normal incidence; Advantage of the mirror cavity concept.
