B List of Verdet Constants?

  1. Oct 28, 2016 #1
    I'm replicating the Faraday Effect as a high school experiment. Can anyone direct me to Verdet constants of water, air, olive oil and table salt for lasers of wavelengths 405nm, 532nm, and 650nm? I'm using the constant as a variable using different materials but I cannot find a specific value for them. Any advice is appreciated.

    Not my field but a bit of googling found papers with some data.

    Water: May need to read of from graphs or plot your own and interpolate.

    Olive oil:
