This experiment extends the concept of optical activity of chiral solution to magnetically induced birefringence through the historically important Faraday Effect, which reveals the rich interplay between optics and magnetism.

Sample Results Faraday rotation varies linearly with magnetic field
Maximum rotation is observed when analyzer is oriented at 45 degree w.r.t polarizer
