The results of the study of the polarization properties of the stimulated photon echo (SPE) excited at room temperature on free excitons and exciton states localized on surface defects of textured thin films are reported. The results of observation and investigation of the effect of the non-Faraday rotation of a femtosecond SPE in a textured thin film are presented. The physical processes occurring under the Faraday effect and the effect of the non-Faraday rotation of the photon echo (PE) polarization plane are compared.
