Abstract

Pulsed magnetic fields of approximately 40 kOe produced by the discharge of a 44-μF, 9.5-kV condenser bank through wire-wound solenoids, have been used to measure the Verdet constant of acetylene, carbon dioxide, chloromethane, chloroethane, dichlorodifluoromethane, and chlorodifluoromethane at six wavelengths between 5783 and 4089 Å. An accuracy of approximately 1% has been attained with gas pressures between 600 and 2080 torr at temperatures between 22° and 30°C. The apparatus and experimental techniques are described.
