Thin film has 'astonishing' ability to rotate light

"Physicists in Austria and Germany have taken the Faraday effect to a new extreme by rotating the polarization of light by 45° by passing it through an extremely thin film. This "giant Faraday effect" could someday be used to create optical transistors that switch light or to improve terahertz imaging systems."
