I have researched much on polarization on the Net and still do not understand a couple things. One, does polarization change the color of the light perceived,not just its amount or intensity, since photons emitted in a certain plane are absorbed? Also, since the excited electrons of light vibrate in all directions, how can two crossed polarizers block all light, and how can polarizers at an angle twist the light? Do the photons "bump" into the long-strand molcules and thereby change direction?
