A linear polarization of the recombination luminescence of photoexcited hot electrons in a multiple quantum well structure has been observed. The peculiarity of electron 2D-motion manifests itself in an observed increase of the polarization with 2D-motion energy. The time of optical-phonon emission by a 2D electron is determined by measuring a magnetic depolarization of the luminescence.
