Re: [TCML] Faraday effect

Actually, the Faraday Effect is an actual effect not having much to do with Faraday Cages at all.
See here - polarized light traveling parallel to magnetic flux is angled
such that a polarized detector could see the event occur:

And this is used in HV measuring equipment.. send polarized light through an appropriate crystal with the conductor next to it, and the amount of rotation is proportional to current.

Or, in fast shutters. Crossed polarizers, coil around crystal, etc.

Does the faraday effect come into play with all conductors closed or not? Example... closed conductor: Faraday suit or bird cage

The Faraday cage is more an example of Gauss's law.
