As noted by Martin and Glauber [5], the polarization of the photon in S-state orbital electron capture is also sensitive to the phase of the vector and axial-vector couplings in the low-energy interaction Hamiltonian [14] if the anti-neutrino is no longer assumed to be strictly right-handed.
Because the s-state is asymmetric, for one of these fields the magnetization will reverse by rotating in the same direction throughout the sample.
