I have a fair bit of idea about photo magnetic effect. But, after several hours of googling I am not able to find a material which exhibits photomagnetic effect. I just wanted to know if photomagnetic effect is possible in normal room temperature conditions, because I came across a thread saying photomagnetic effect is possible at -259 degree Celsius.

What you are looking is called a magneto-optic effect. In particular, the Faraday effect
... causes a rotation of the plane of polarization which is linearly proportional to the component of the magnetic field in the direction of propagation.

Thanks for the reply
Is Magneto-Optic effect is a phenomenon where light passed through a material produces magnetic field?. I just wanted to know about a material which should produce a magnetic field when light is passed through it in normal temperature surroundings.

Could you post a link to the low-temperature article?

I was not able to find the -259 degree Celsius link but the link which I have mentioned below is a new one.
