Magneto-electric properties of the magnetic domains local areas of bismuth-substituted yttrium iron garnet films are investigated. The electromagneto-optical (EMO) scanning method was used in our experiments when probing by laser beam various sites of separate magnetic domains of the film. Registered in our experiments the nonlinear and linear components of EMO effect does not remain to constants at optical scanning of various points of the magnetic domain. I.e. the local EMOE picture from the separate sites of the domain must be more informative than an averaged one in the multidomain case.
