An optical technique is presented which permits a simultaneous observation of domains and domain boundaries in transparent and opaque magnetic specimens. The Faraday or Kerr contrast combined with Bitter pattern agglomerations yields a maximum information transference for an investigation of magnetic fine structures. Some results obtained for a uniaxial ferrimagnetic film are discussed.
