We report on the first observation of the circular photogalvanic effect (CPGE) induced by optical monopolar spin orientation of holes in p-doped quantum-well structures. It is shown that monopolar optical spin orientation of free carriers causes an electric current which reverses its direction upon changing from left to right circularly polarized radiation. The effect has been observed in (0 0 ...
