Paper Abstract

On the basis of spin continuity equation we study the propagation of light in locally isotropic inhomogeneous media. We have obtained refined value of linear birefringence of order ((lambda) /(alpha) )2 in layered media. We have studied spin transformations in perturbed weakly guiding fibers and proved that spin dynamics in fibers is governed by Heisenberg equation for a spin-1/2 particle.
