    As you know, light is emitted by oscillating dipoles. The direction of this oscillation defines the polarization of the emitted wave. Also, a dipole cannot emit radiation in the direction of its axis, because polarization and propagation have to be perpendicular to one another.

    Because there are many many many unordered dipoles in a ...
