Linear polarizers can be divided into two general categories: absorptive polarizers, where the unwanted polarization states are absorbed by the device, and beam-splitting polarizers, where the unpolarized beam is split into two beams with opposite polarization states. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polarizer
three polarizers paradox.
I've recorded a video showing behavior of absorptive polarizer in visible light.

Quote from: hamdani yusuf on 11/06/2022 14:04:23I just got an even stronger evidence that diffracted light is produced by the edges of the obstacle, instead of the space between those edges. The experiment involves linear polarization. I've finally uploaded the video. //www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMj4l0rM2qw

A paradox is a logically self-contradictory statement or a statement that runs contrary to one's expectation.
For what it's worth, the classical description of polarisation also explains the transmission through three polarisers.It's not a very paradoxical paradox.
http://alienryderflex.com/polarizer/Third-Polarizing-Filter Experiment Demystified ? How It WorksSpookiness and the Word ?Filter?Why do these results seem spooky? The reason is because of the misapplication of the word ?filter.? A filter is commonly understood to mean a device that knocks some items out of a stream, while leaving others essentially untouched. A good example of a filter is a sieve ? it blocks objects of a particular size, while allowing objects of other sizes to pass through.Understood this way, the results of the polarizer experiment are indeed spooky. If the all-blocking equivalent of Figure 2 is constructed using sieves or color frequency filters (see Figures 4 and 5), we are certainly confident that the addition of more filters in the middle of the sequence will not yield different results at the end.But what if our so-called ?filters? could not only block components of the stream, but also change them? Then we would not be surprised at all if the addition of new ?filters? in the middle caused items to get through to the end. If a sieve could not only block particles, but also change their size, or if a color filter could not only block frequencies, but shift light to a different frequency, then all bets are off.
Here is another video investigating the effect of twin polarizer.//www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHVs8Y555ekIt shows the effect of double polarizer when they are close to each other but are still separated electrically. The last part shows the polarisation of microwave coming out from the last polarizer.The next video will show the effect of double polarizer when they are close to each other and electrically connected, so stay tuned.
And here are videos demonstrating conjoined twin polarizer//www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVVxSrjvS7o//www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4-357xklQUIn the end of the experiment, it's shown that rotating the receiver can make the reading down to 0, which means that the microwave is linearly polarized instead of eliptical or circularly polarized.
In this demonstration, a Michelson-Morley Interferometer is used to create an interference pattern between a beam of light with itself. This interference seems to be abolished when one ray's polarization is rotated by 90 degrees.
