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

In section 33.8, Penrose brings in "Massless fields of mixed helicitysuch as a planepolarized photon, which is the sum of a righthanded and lefthanded part".

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

He recalls Boris 'second helicity supertrace Omega, talks about walls of marginal stability and

Dixon found some new structures in the helicity formalism.

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.

ArntbHLHC / EBP shows 49\% helicity, as measured at 222 nm.

$latex g_ {ab} ~ = ~\eta_ {ab} ~+~h_ {ab} for the perturbation h_ {ab} small one gets a Maxwellianlike sort of wave equation with helicity 2.
