Abstract : A new method to produce gravitational radiation by stimulated emission, using photons as the stimulating particles, is suggested. Such a process should occur in some stars, and it has important possibilities in connection with gravitational lasers. Calculations show that soft gravitational radiation could interact with light more than has hitherto been assumed. The mixed Compton effect and the behaviour of superconductors in gravitational fields were also studied as well as a generalization of the 5 dimensional theory to account for PC-nonconservation.
