Abstract

We have revealed a large Faraday rotation in tin thiohypodiphosphate ( Sn 2 P 2 S 6 ) crystals, which makes this material promising for magneto-optics. The effective Faraday tensor component and the Verdet constant for the direction of the optic axis have been determined by measuring the pure Faraday rotation in Sn 2 P 2 S 6 crystals with both the single-ray and small-angular polarimetric methods at the normal conditions and a wavelength of 632.8 nm . The effective Verdet constant is found to be equal to 115 rad / T × m .
