Paper Abstract

The influence of a magnetic field on the polarization characteristics of thermal radiation emitted by isotropic semiconductors was investigated theoretically. It was shown that thermal emission is polarized and the degree of polarization depends on the applied magnetic field and experiment geometry. Muller matrix formalism was used firstly for the decision of such problems.
