|Abstract: ||The Faraday rotation in an isotropic substance is known to be
vitiated by the presence of accidenlal birefringence which is very common
in many cubic crystals, grown either from solution or from melt. A
simple method of eliminating the errors due to the birefringence is dis- .
cussed here. It is shown that the actual value of the rotation could be
" accurately evaluated from the measured values of the apparent rotation.
This, method is exemplified in the case of MgO and Pb (NOS, crystals
and is found to give most satisfactory results. This method now permits
the cxteis$n of magneto-optic measurements to a large number of crystals
that have a habit of exhibiting residual birefringence.|
