HACYAN, S.. Interaction of light with gravitational waves. Rev. mex. fis. [online]. 2014, vol.60, n.3, pp.253-256. ISSN 0035-001X.

The physical properties of electromagnetic waves in the presence of a gravitational plane wave are analyzed. Formulas for the Stokes parameters describing the polarization of light are obtained in closed form. The particular case of a constant amplitude gravitational wave is worked out explicitly and it is shown that it produces a linear polarization of light.

Keywords : Gravitational waves; electromagnetic waves; Stokes parameteres.
