Abstract

We further generalize the powerful method, which we have recently developed for description of the background matter influence on neutrinos, for the case of an electron moving in matter. On the basis of the modified Dirac equation for the electron, accounting for the standard model interaction with particles of the background, we predict and investigate in some detail a new mechanism of the electromagnetic radiation which is due to the electron charge in matter. We have termed this radiation the "spin light of electron" in matter and predicted that this radiation can have consequences accessible for experimental observations in astrophysical and cosmological settings.
