Rotation of light utilizing a magnetic field

  1. Mar 19, 2008 #1
    I've developed a lens that is a cross between a modified hele-shaw cell and a modified etalon. My experiments with a red laser and a strong (2T) magnet result in the deflection of a laser beam 180 degrees. The deflection angle will rotate in direct proportion to the angle of the applied magnetic field.

    Polarizing filters have no effect on the outcome of these experiments.

    I have movies and images that support these claims.

    Is anyone familiar with this principal? And if so, where can I find more information concerning this phenomenon?
