Conference paper


A consistent theory of polarized light emission including relaxation processes should examine the whole process of the transformation of an exciting photon into an emitted photon. For such a treatment, not only luminescence but also all other kinds of secondary radiation, i.e. Rayleigh and Raman scattering, hot luminescence, and interference processes must be considered. The principles of such a two-photon theory of polarization are formulated, using as a basis the theory of resonant secondary radiation, and taking into account the influence of the Jahn-Teller effect on the integral polarization characteristics. Furthermore the influence of the same effect on the spectral dependence of these characteristics is discussed.
