Photons and the Diverse Nature of Light

Authors: David Johnson

Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) can be produced by a range of large-scale events (nuclear reactions, galaxy collisions, the Big Bang etc.) or by smaller scale events such as the excitement of a gas or a chemical reaction. This short article focuses on the nature of photons and their transmission as ‘normal’ light, plane and circularly polarised light and transverse mode light.
