||This experiment allows the measurement of the effects of a magnetic field on the polarization of light (laser beam) propagating through a solid medium. A new experimental setup that uses modern rare earth magnets will be presented. The use of lasers of various frequencies enhances the pedagogical value of the setup. The experimental setup was developed by Professor Carl Akerlof at The University of Michigan.
