Abstract

We have revealed a large Faraday rotation in tin thiohypodiphosphate (Sn2P2S6) crystals, which makes this material promising for magneto-optics. The effective Faraday tensor component and the Verdet constant for the direction of the optic axis have been determined by measuring the pure Faraday rotation in Sn2P2S6 crystals with both the single-ray and small-angular polarimetric methods at the normal conditions and a wavelength of 632.8nm. The effective Verdet constant is found to be equal to 115rad/T×m.
