    We have demonstrated an ultrafast high-contrast surface-reflection all-optical switch using a spin-polarization scheme. The device is made with low-temperature-grown Be-doped strained InGaAs/InAlAs multiple quantum wells. It has a photoresponse of 300 fs due to ultrafast electron trapping. The...

    The effect of a strong magnetic field on the collision-induced change in the polarization characteristics of radiation emitted by excited helium-like ions is considered. Concrete calculations for the C V, Al XII, and Ti XXI ions in the ¹P[sub 1] state showed that magnetic fields of a few...

    A mechanism leading to self-polarization of a beam of free electrons injected from a light-emitting cathode is considered. It is shows that the exchange interaction may lead to self-polarization of an electron beam in vacuum and maintain the polarization of a beam in a substance.
