Polarization effects in electron scattering in the gravitational field of a rotating source

  • 15 Accesses

Abstract

The polarization effects in electron scattering in a gravitational field with the Kerr metric are examined, and a formula is obtained for the deflection angle of a relativistic spin -1/2 particle in such a field by the methods of quantum electrodynamics.
