The intensity ( I) and velocity ( V) signals obtained using magneto-optical filters (MOF), are not independent of each other. The induced spurious signals affect the intensity-velocity phase difference measurements and the effect is referred to as a I-V crosstalk (Moretti & Severino 2002). We show a new model to interpret the I-V phase measurements and, in particular, its application to the interpretation of the data obtained with sodium MOF systems. The model can also be applied to correct the velocity-velocity phase from multi layer observations.
