Paper Abstract

It is shown that light, initially linearly polarized, becomes endowed with elliptical polarisation on traversal of an antiferromagnetic crystal acted on by a static magnetic field (induction B). The ellipticity can be linear in B, thus being the Magnetic Analog of Pockels' Effect (MAPE).
