Description

Terbium Gallium Garnet and Potassium Terbium Fluorideare paramagnetic materials used as optical isolators which prevent feedback to the pump laser in high power laser systems via the Faraday effect. The Verdet constant is a measure of the strength of the Faraday effect and was measured by exposing samples of materials to a magnetic field as a linearly polarized diode laser beam passed through the samples. The change of direction of the linear polarization was measured as a function of the magnetic field at wavelengths between 0.405 microns and 1.55 microns and the Verdet coefficients of Terbium Gallium Garnet and Potassium Terbium Fluoride were determined.
