Paper Abstract

We have studied the nonlinear Faraday effect of intense linear polarized light in an optically thick atomic rubidium vapor. We have shown that the polarization rotatation rate (rotation angle per unit magnetic field, in the limit of low field) reaches a saturation value as the intensity and density are increased.
