Our 38 A. Fainstein experiments showed that anisotropic contributions as that claimed to be due to time-nonreversibility in cubic bulk materials were indeed present, though of magnitude much smaller than seen in the previous reports (10−3). And we also observed that these polarization changes did not scale with sample thickness, but rather varied erratically from sample to sample [7]. The conclusions were obvious: defects or surface reconstructions always present in surfaces (which obviously lack cubic symmetry) were the cause of the observed tiny anisotropies.

With the second one he already told me that he was willing to give me this chance by offering me a grant. Later I learned that such a “miracle” (at least for me) happened after Manuel called Paco de la Cruz in Bariloche, Argentina, and Paco recommended me for this job. Needless to say how grateful I am to both for that opportunity. My life changed completely in a few months: I finished my degree, set myself to move to another country with different culture and language and, one month before traveling, I got married!

We could finally give a clear theoretical explanation to the work started by G. Ambracevicius, Roberto Merlin and Manuel in 1987 [1]. We sent the work to the 11th ICPS Conference in Warsaw and later on we published a paper in Phys. Rev. B [2]. As in the remaining topics I studied with Manuel, he was never happy until we did not understand deeply the physics insights. Also during 1988, Prof. Carlos Trallero came to the MPI, invited by Manuel, in order to shed some light into the absolute measurements of resonant Raman scattering.
