Abstract. In the sixties Ogievetskii and Polubarinov proposed
the concept of a notoph, whose helicity
properties are complementary to those of a photon.
We analyze the theory of antisymmetric tensor fields
in the view of the normalization problem. The obtained
result is that it is possible to describe both photon and
notoph degrees of freedom on the basis of the modified
Bargmann-Wigner formalism for the symmetric
second-rank spinor. Physical consequences are discussed.
