We analytically calculate the intrinsic longitudinal and transverse optical conductivities of electronic systems which govern by a modified-Dirac fermion model Hamiltonian for materials beyond graphene such as monolayer MoS2 and an ultrathin film of topological insulator. We analyze the effect of a topological term in the Hamiltonian on the optical conductivity and transmittance. We show that the optical response enhances in the non-trivial phase of the system and the optical Hall conductivity changes sign at transition from trivial to non-trivial phases which has significant consequences on a circular polarization and optical absorption of the system.
