A polaron in a magnetic field shows, as function of the magnetic field, two regimes: 1) for small magnetic field strength a dressed polaron moves under the influence of the magnetic field while 2) for relatively large magnetic field strength the polaron shakes off its polarization cloud in the direction perpendicular to the magnetic field. The influence of this stripping effect on the magneto-absorption spectrum is discussed.
