Homework Help: Faraday Effect: Calculating Vedet Constants

  1. Jul 23, 2014 #1
    Hi guys, so we currently ran an experiment where we calculated the verdet constant when laser light passed through a glass rod then through an analyzer to a photodetector.
    The experiment worked great for us but I wanted to know if anyone has ever calculated the verdet constant for any other substances.

    To be more specific, we used equipment bought from TeachSpin,
    we used a solenoid with about 1400 turns of copper wires with a power supply hooked up to it at 3 amps to apply a magnetic field of about 11.l(mT/A)I, where I is the current, 3 amps in out case.
    The glass rod was specifically called Schott SF-59, and had a verdet constant of about 23 radians/mT*m

    has anyone ran the experiment with perhaps a liquid with a known verdet constant? Or any other easy to get substance?
    Thanks guys.
