Possible experimental manifestations of the torsion field

The question whether it is possible in principle to obtain experimental evidence of the existence of torsion fields is discussed. Torsion is introduced as an element of the universal gravitational interaction complementary to the metric. An equation is written which is an analog of the Pauli equation in the torsion and electromagnetic external fields. The equations of motion of a weakly relativistic particle in an external torsion field are obtained.
