We report the first experimental observation of light polarization plane rotation, of approximately 10-3 rad, on normal reflection from a [001] GaAs surface. The rotation is attributed to both surface anisotropy and bulk crystal nonlocality due to violation of time-reversibility, appearing from the importance of the electron spin-orbit interaction
