An attempt was made to construct a magneto-optic shutter utalizing the Faraday effect. Unfortunately, the final testing did not show the present of this effect. Included in the paper is a graph showing the transmission of two polarizing filters vs the angle between the transmission axes of each filter. Also included is schematics of pertinent components.
