Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Also gravity waves have to directions of polarization, instead of one for EM waves, which is tied to something called helicity which is 2.

    A Dark, Misleading Force

  • In section 33.8, Penrose brings in "Massless fields of mixed helicity-such as a plane-polarized photon, which is the sum of a right-handed and left-handed part".

    Are Changes Brewing and How Does the Mind Fit In?

  • The photon has a helicity or spin, momentum and energy.

  • The chiral helicity of the films may be useful for electromagnetic and optical applications.

  • The other rules may be briefly mentioned here: the weak isospin rule, the strong (color) charge rule, the mass rule, the equivalence rule, the antiparticle rule, the helicity rule and the

    The Reference Frame

  • Dixon found some new structures in the helicity formalism.

    The Reference Frame

  • The laser pulses were polarized at right angles to each other, so they created an interference grating in which the light intensity was constant but its helicity varied.
