We show the synthetic procedure of colored magnetic films composed of Prussian blue analog-based magnets and their magneto-optical effects in the visible region. Magnetic thin films of M3II[CrIII(CN)6]2·zH2O (M = Co, Ni, Cu) are prepared on transparent Nafion membrane by an ion-exchange process and these films exhibit Faraday effect due to d-d transition of MII. The film-type of (FexICr1-xII)3[CrIII(CN)6]2·15H2O is electrochemically prepared by reducing aqueous solutions containing three compounds of K 3[Cr(CN)6], CrCl3, and FeCl3. These films display magnetization-induced second harmonic generation below Curie temperature.
