In this paper we present the results of theoretical calculations for spin polarization η of band electrons in diluted magnetic semiconductor subjected to a polarized light wave and a carrier warming electric field E. It was shown that the maximum value of ηmax can be reached at a certain Emax corresponding to the peak of the carrier drift velocity v(E). For the higher doping impurity concentration, the values of ηmax become lower due to the equivalent decrease of electron temperature.
