Abstract
The differential cross-sections of electron-atom collisions in a radiation field are different for right and left circular polarization of field. Simple expression for the dichroism in one-photon electron-atom scattering and spontaneous bremsstrahlung is presented. The numerical estimation of dichroism for one-photon Coulomb scattering shows that the effect may be observed experimentally.
