Specifically, the observed X-ray polarization of a gravitationally microlensed quasar should vary rapidly with time if the gravitational Faraday effect indeed exists," he said.
If detected, Chen's effect -- a derivative of the gravitational Faraday effect -- would provide strong evidence of the correctness of Einstein's general relativity theory in the "strong-field regime," or an environment in close proximity to a black hole.
In this paper, it is demonstrated that the well known and empirically observable inverse Faraday effect {1-6} has a resonance equivalent, which we name radiatively induced fermion resonance (RFR).
