Paper Abstract

The elastic light-light scattering below the threshold of the e+e- pair production leads to a variation in polarization of hard (gamma) -quanta traversing (without loss in intensity) a region where the laser light is focused. This effect can be used to exert a full control over (gamma) - quantum polarization. Equations are obtained which determine the variation of Stokes parameters of (gamma) -quanta in this case, and their solutions are given. It is pointed out that this effect can be observed in the experiment of the type of E-144 at SLAC. It should be taken into account and, perhaps, it can be used in experiments at future (gamma) (gamma) colliders.
