Faraday effect

hi. I am currently supposed to be doing a lab on the faraday effect, however the lab manual provided was poorly written and some what clumsy in the experimental procedure. I was wondering if any of you know a good site or book that explains a little about the theory and how experamental procedure to measure it.


One of my friends (rmrfstar) was heavily involved in the writing of that article, the article on atomic line filters (which is featured) (which can make use of the faraday effect).
