This paper investigates  the gigantic magneto-optical effect in a SiC light-emitting diode fabricated by dressed-photon–phonon (DPP)-assisted annealing. Very large values of the Verdet constant and the Faraday rotation angle were obtained, namely, 660 deg/A and 2480 deg/cm, respectively, at a wavelength of 405 nm. The remanent magnetization was 0.36 mT. The magnetization curve, acquired at 27 °C, exhibited a clear hysteresis characteristic. This behavior of the SiC crystal, equivalent to that of a ferromagnet, was attributed to Al atom pairs autonomously formed as a result of the DPP-assisted annealing.
