Influence of resonance Compton scattering in a magnetic field on rotation of the polarization plane of photons


The solution of the problem of the value of rotation of photon polarization plane in totally spin-polarized electron gas in quantizing magnetic field is obtained. The second order perturbation theory on electromagnetic coupling is considered using modified Gell-Mann– Goldberger–Thirring dispersion relationship and optical theorem. Approximate formula obtained by Fomin and Kholodov for resonance Compton scattering cross-section is used in calculation.
