To wit, the polarization in light has to do with direction of the plane in which the electric field vector oscillates as a function of time. For example, linearly polarized light is when the plane is constant in time while elliptically or circularly polarized light has the plane rotating as time passes.
And the same word 'polarisation' refers to separation of charges. Is this where the (OP) idea that a photon could be charged has come from?
