Magnetooptics deals with the interaction between light and matter. When the matter is subjected to external magnetic field. The presence of external magnetic field varies optical anisotropy of the material. Different orientation of magnetic fields produces different magnetic effects. In the series of experiments performed at physics optics lab, magnetic circular and magnetic linear effects were observed in TGG crystal. Magnetic circular birefringence (MCB), Faraday effect, was observed at room temperature for 405 nm laser. Magnetic linear dichroism (MLD) and magnetic linear birefringence (MCB), stokesCottonMouton effect, was observed at cryogenic temperatures ranging from 8K- 150K in TGG crystal. These two effects were observed for 405 nm and 633 nm laser. ComStokespolarimetry using Fourier series coefficients was also done for observing magnetic linear effects,for 633 nm laser, in TGG crystal .
