You see this setup above. There is an unpolarized light source travelling through a transparent dielectric medium. Think of this triangular shaped medium as a capacitor. there are 3 conductive sides enclosing the dielectric transparent medium.
the umpolarized light waves will travel through the medium and nothing will change unless I apply changing electric field and create zeeman effect within the volume.
Please inspect the setup below.
My question is, if I apply the wave forms like above to the conductive plates of the medium (the time it takes is less than the travelling time of the light through the medium) would it change all the photons EM orientation and make them closer to 45° as above?
It makes sense in my mind but some part of me says it shouldn't be this simple.
