Px, Py, Pz are the Cartesian components of a transverse polarization vector (linear polarization). I don't think the command checks for the validity of the input; i.e. you MUST make sure that the three components are normalized to one and perpendicular to the photon direction. (nothing to do with the Stokes Parameters or the Jones Vectors)

So, light linearly polarized in the horizontal direction, would be 1 0 0 if the photon travels in the yz-plane
