Transmission and reflection of a normally incident wave from a magnetic superlattice consisting of 2N ferromagnetic layers with alternating orientation of the magnetization vector are considered. The characteristic matrix of a superlattice relating wave amplitudes at the entrance to the system and at the exit from it is calculated in the closed form and Jones matrices determining all the basic magnetooptical characteristics of the structure (transmission and reflection coefficients, the degree of polarization of transmitted and reflected waves, and so on) are constructed. A significant dependence of these characteristics on the number of layers is demonstrated.
