The anisotropy of the Faraday effect was studied on 15 optically uniaxial and biaxial crystals by an automated procedure of high resolution. The Faraday tensor of these crystals appears to be not quasi-isotropic. In the vicinity of phase transitions strong anomalies were observed.
Zeitschrift für Kristallographie – Crystalline Materials offers a place for researchers to present results of their crystallographic studies. The journal includes theoretical as well as experimental research. It publishes Original Papers, Letters and Review Articles in manifold areas of crystallography.
