The reflection of light from the interface of a dielectric film characterized by a cubic optical nonlinearity on a bigyrotropic magnetoelectric substrate is investigated theoretically. The incidence angle dependence of reflection coefficients are obtained for all principal magneto-optical configurations: polar, longitudinal, and transverse. The influence of magnetoelectric and magneto-optical contributions to electric polarization of the bilayered structure on polarization state of light, reflected at angles close to the Brewster angles is measured.
