Paper Abstract

Refractometry, linear and circular birefringence measurements, applied to transparent antiferromagnetic substances, is reviewed from a viewpoint of magnetic phase transition. A symmetry breaking birefringence observed in the ordered spin phases of a triangular lattice antiferromagnet RbFeBr3 is discussed with respect to the spin ordering of this system. Results of verdet constant measurement are shown on a couple of typical uniaxial antiferromagnets having the CdCl2 structure.
