We have investigated the magnetooptical Kerr effect (MOKE) in Fe(n ML)/Au(n ML) superlattices where n is integer and ML represents monatomic layer thickness. The MOKE spectra show prominent structure between 3 and 5 eV. The n dependence of the prominent structure is discussed in comparison with the case of ultrathin Fe films which show the magnetooptical transitions associated with the quantum-well states.
