Is it by convention that the jones column vectors are written like,
[1,i], [2,i] etc etc, I never see [i,2] Is [i,1] really left circularly polarized light, it seems so indicated below [tex]\left[ \begin{array}{c} i \\ 1 \end{array} \right]\; =i\; \left[ \begin{array}{c} ii \\ 1i \end{array} \right]\; =\; i\left[ \begin{array}{c} i^{2} \\ 1 \end{array} \right]\; =\; i\left[ \begin{array}{c} 1 \\ 1 \end{array} \right]\; =\; i\left[ \begin{array}{c} 1 \\ i \end{array} \right][/tex]
