FIG. 2.

Optics setup for the FR measurements with the EMFC coil and the sample holder set inside an anti-explosion chamber. The inset schematically illustrates the sample holder, a 2 mm-thick quartz rod with a pickup coil wound around the rod.

(a) The FR signal of the s- and p-polarized components (V s , V p ), in experiment #F1. The upper panel shows the sum of the two amplitudes of polarized light, V s + V p . (b) A plot close to the turn-around phenomenon showing both the raw and normalized data (V s , V p , V s, n , and V p, n ). The dashed line in the upper panel shows V s, n + V p, n .

FIG. 4.

The magnetic field curves obtained by the pickup coil, plotted as a function of time. The experimental conditions of #F1 to #C2 are summarized in Table I .

FIG. 5.

The simultaneous measurement of the magnetic field by the pickup coils, and the FR angle of fused quartz, for experiment #F1. The thick line corresponds to the magnetic field measured by the pickup coils, and the thin lines correspond to the amplitude of the s- (V s ) and p-polarized (V p ) FR signals. The dotted vertical line indicates the time of the turn-around phenomenon observed in the FR signal.

FIG. 7.

The measured magnetic field as a function of time for the induced voltage of the pickup coils (thin lines, B p ), and θ F of fused quartz (thick lines, B FR ). For clarity, the curve corresponding to experiment #F3 was shifted by 1.0 μs.

The comparison between B p (solid thin lines), B p, c (solid thick lines), and B FR of fused quartz (thick dashed lines), for experiments (a) #F1, and (b) #F2. The C L R L curves are also shown (thin dotted lines), as is the characteristic time of C L R L = 0 (vertical dashed line).

FIG. 12.

The results of simultaneous measurement of the pickup coil and the FR angle of crown glass for experiments (a) #C1, and (b) #C2. The notations are the same as for Fig. 11 .

Summary of the deviation from B FR for (a) B p , and (b) B p, c , plotted against B FR . The dotted lines indicate an estimated error boundary of 3%, 5%, and 10%. The vertical lines in (b) indicate a position of B FR , where the induced voltage in the pickup coil reached a maximum value. The inset of (a) shows an enlarged plot between 150 T and 450 T.

FIG. 14.

The wavelength dispersion of the Verdet constant of fused quartz and crown glass in the visible light region. The open symbols (circles: fused quartz, squares: crown glass), show the Verdet constants obtained in this study. The closed symbols are the data taken from Garn et al. 17 and Ramaseshan. 22 The dashed curves are the fits to the data of Eq. (B1) in Appendix B . The theoretical curve of typical crown glass (BK7) was calculated using the fitting parameters in Table II . The vertical dotted lines show the wavelengths used in this study: 404 nm and 638 nm.
