Polarization and Malus’s Law


I’ve been thinking about photon polarization and it’s clear that the point charge structure of photons is going to solve the mysteries and issues about polarizers and polarization with a very cogent physical explanation.

Let’s examine background information on polarization.

Polarization is a property applying to transverse waves that specifies the geometrical orientation of their oscillations. In a transverse wave, the direction of the oscillation is perpendicular to the direction of motion of the wave. A simple example of a polarized transverse wave is vibrations traveling along a taut string; for example, in a musical instrument like a guitar string. Depending on how the string is plucked, the vibrations can be in a vertical direction, horizontal direction, or at any angle perpendicular to the string. An electromagnetic wave such as light consists of a coupled oscillating electric field and magnetic field which are always perpendicular to each other; by convention, the “polarization” of electromagnetic waves refers to the direction of the electric field relative to the line of travel.

Point Charge Mapping
electric dipole moment the electric dipole moment is a measure of the separation of positive and negative electrical charges within a system, that is, a measure of the system’s overall polarity.Same definition. The charges are understood to be the electrino and positrino point charges that make the assemblies of the standard model.
polarizabilitypolarizability refers to the tendency of matter, when subjected to an electric or magnetic field, to acquire an electric or magnetic dipole moment (respectively) in proportion to that applied field. All assemblies are polarizable, including the Higgs spacetime aether assemblies (i.e., “vacuum” polarizability).
linear polarizationthe fields oscillate in a single direction.

composed of photons that are in a superposition of right and left circularly polarized states, with equal amplitude and phases synchronized to give oscillation in a plane.
All point charges potential fields are constantly in superposition at each point in spacetime.

The potential fields of the left-handed spin photons and the right-handed spin photons will superimpose locally and match observations.
right circular or elliptical polarizationthe fields rotate at a constant rate in a plane in a right hand sense (right hand rule).

composed of photons with only right-hand spin.
Point to research : Is it the polarizer that is filtering for one constant rate or is it a natural process that is generating photons that have an equal rate or are both possible?
left circular or elliptical polarization.the fields rotate at a constant rate in a plane in a left hand sense.

composed of photons with only left-hand spin.
See point above.
unpolarized lightExamples : Light from the sun, flames, and incandescent lamps, consists of short wave trains with an equal mixture of polarizations.How literal is “equal mixture”?
What proportion linear, right, left?
What proportion by rotation rate?
Is linear polarization when rate = 0?
polarizermaterial that allows waves of only one polarization to pass through.It will be fun when we can simulate this and understand the specific interactions and reactions that occur in a photon event with a material.
birefringence, dichroism, or optical activitymaterials that affect light differently depending on its polarization.This will be fascinating to simulate the different assembly behaviours in detail, with point charge provenance!
partial polarizationExample : light reflects at an angle from a surface.How does a photon assembly bounce off a material surface for example? Or pass through a material for that matter!

Point Charge Mapping
vacuum polarizationIn quantum field theory, and specifically quantum electrodynamics, vacuum polarization describes a process in which a background electromagnetic field produces virtual electron–positron pairs that change the distribution of charges and currents that generated the original electromagnetic field.The “vacuum” is spacetime aether assemblies, aka Higgs couplets of low apparent energy pro and anti Noether cores. When subjected to certain potential fields the Higgs reconfigures into e
“virtual” pro-anti pairsThese particle–antiparticle pairs carry various kinds of charges, such as color charge if they are subject to QCD such as quarks or gluons, or the more familiar electromagnetic charge if they are electrically charged leptons or quarks. Such charged pairs act as an electric dipole.The definition is the same, but the assemblies are real, if ephemeral, and not virtual.
screeningIn the presence of an electric field, e.g., the electromagnetic field around an electron, these particle–antiparticle pairs reposition themselves, thus partially counteracting the field. The field therefore will be weaker than would be expected if the vacuum were completely empty. This is the effect in point charge theory called shielding via superposition. Keep in mind that dipoles are orbiting so the potential field is switching directions at the frequency of each dipole and the overall superposition.

Goodbye LCDM, you were confused but helpful. Malus’s Law is easily explained with point charges. This is another confirmation of NPQG and a requiem for LCDM. #AAS237 attendees prepare yourselves for galaxy local inflationary mini-bangs and zero tension. 🤓

Update March 2023 : I had a nice discussion on reddit with a curious person who asked, “Your head-on diagram oh the photon shows the orbits such that the proximity of same charges results in the EM maxima. A photon can have left or right, circular polarization, or a superposition of the two. Would that correspond to both assemblies orbiting clockwise, or counterclockwise, or one in each direction?”

I remember thinking about that, but I just reviewed the blog post I wrote on Malus law and it looks like I didn’t desribe the topic in detail. I remember watching this particular video by Eugene Khutoryansky and visualizing how it would work. I was thinking that the polarizer would let through photons at a particular point in their orbit based on alignment. I know what happened. There was so much low hanging fruit that I set this topic aside to work on other areas. I’m fairly confident that the solution can be deduced with logic though.
