Abstract
Laser radiation induced Faraday rotations of over 100 degrees per cm are reported in InSb for low incident powers (<< 1 W) in the largely transmitting region below the frequency for direct interband transitions. The effect has been systematically studied as a function of pump radiation frequency and power in addition to applied magnetic field. The inter-related effects of saturation and blocking are discussed as potential mechanisms responsible for the observed effects. Results of preliminary two-beam pump and probe experiments are also reported.
