Abstract
A new and simple method was developed for accurate measurement of Faraday rotation in materials with low rotation using Faraday magneto-optical modulator. A rode of glass with a large Verdet constant is used for this measurement. The rotatory angle can take values in the magnitude of sub-millidegree (10-4 degrees). Detailed theoretical and experimental analysis was given.
