English: Diagram of linear polarization The direction of the black line relative to the central axis represents the direction of the electric field of the linearly polarized light at each point in space. The blue and red lines are projections of the helix onto two planes which are at right angles. ---- This image is identical to the original with the exception of phase indictors to make the phase relationship of its components clearer. ---- The original was created using Mathematica and the Open Source program Inkscape. Refer to the origin for information concerning its initial creation. It was altered using Inkscape.
