Temperature dependence of the Faraday effect is investigated for As2S3 fiber at 3.39 μm, obtaining a Verdet constant V of 1.62 × 10−2 min/cm · G at room temperature and a temperature-dependence term coefficient of 10.67 min · K/cm · G in the experiments. The V value obtained at 25°C is consistent with the theoretical estimates based on the first derivative of known refractive indices with respect to the wavelength. The temperature-dependent term is also discussed theoretically.
