A simple experiment for determining Verdet constants using alternating current magnetic fields

Abstract

A simple experiment suitable for a senior undergraduate and graduate laboratory on the measurement of Faraday rotation using ac magnetic fields is described. The apparatus was used to measure the wavelength dependence of Verdet constants for several materials. A concentration-dependent study on ferric chloride water solution was also carried out to… (More)
