In science:

In the SM, where λγ ≈ −1, the asymmetry is (33 ± 5)% and the polarization signature is unambiguous: in B− and ¯B 0 decays the photon prefers to be emitted in the hemisphere of ~pslow × ~pfast, while in B+ and B 0 it is more likely to be emitted in the opposite hemisphere.
P and CP violation in B physics
The polarization of both beams can be further used to produce interactions with the same (Jz = 0) or opposite (Jz = 2) photon helicities, useful e.g. for Higgs studies.
Physics at a gamma gamma, e gamma and e-e- Option for a Linear Collider
This surprising statement consist in noticing that the transaction in question is made only if the traders have opposite polarizations (and even that is not a guarantee of the accomplishment).
Quantum Game Theory in Finance
Schematic illustration of the simultaneous observability of rays from opposite sides of the polar cap, via magnetospher ic refraction.
Radio Pulsars
As the X + is formed with two heavy holes of opposite spin (i.e., mh = +3/2 and mh = −3/2 respectively), the electron-hole exchange cancels in this charged exciton complex, so that the polarization of the charged excitons reflects the spin relaxation τe of the electron only.
Exciton Spin Dynamics in Semiconductor Quantum Wells
The maximal polarization we have obtained is approximately 1 % of the total nuclear polarization, and its direction being opposite the external magnetic field corresponds to cooling of the nuclei.
Dynamic nuclear polarization using a single pair of electrons
The decays B 0 → F γ and B 0 → F γ produce photons with opposite helicities, and since the polarization is, in principle, observable, these final states cannot interfere.

Large polar spots can be explained as the consequence of flux tube instability in the tachocline while anti-solar but terfly diagrams could indicate a meridional flow pattern opposite to that of the Sun.
The rotation-magnetic field relation
Clearly, for all a ∈ |T |, we have pU (σ(a)) = ¬pT (a) since an action can only interact with an action of the opposite polarity.
Quantitative testing semantics for non-interleaving
As the protons travel around the ring, a sequence of pairs of opposite-polarity (focussing and defocussing) quadrupole magnets prevents the beam from blowing up and confines it within the beampipe.
The super-LHC
Note that in this case the length of any edge of P is 1, since each edge of the cube joins a vertex of S with a vertex of S (cid:5) and no edge of P joins polar opposite vertices.

It is clearly seen that while for the cascade starting from the S biexciton, the emission of the exciton is “bunched” for co-linear polarizations and “anti-bunched” for cross-linear polarizations, the exact opposite happens for the cascade starting from the T0 biexciton.

The pT -dependence can be interpreted in terms of different TMD-widths resulting from the different orbital motion of quarks polarized in the direction of the proton spin, and opposite to it.
