Question Question about Polarization 

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons
Date: 29 Mar, 2013
From: Athreya Shankar <Athreya Shankar>


I have been wondering whether the user has to ensure some consistency while defining the propagation direction and polarization of optical photons, if the user is creating them as primary particles. That is, should the user ensure that the polarization is in the plane perpendicular to the propagation direction? What will happen if the user specifies a polarization that has a component parallel to the propagation direction?

Thanks and regards, Athreya
