We are actually watching two movies when we watch 3-D, thanks to a "circularly polarizing" technology that involves splitting the projected light into two series of rapidly alternating images--a right-eye image that circles clockwise, like the cat's head, and a left-eye image that circles counterclockwise; 3-D glasses with oppositely circularly polarized lenses ensure that each eye can see only one image.
Due to the nature of this nuclear precession, it is the circularly polarized components of the RF fields that are important in communicating with the nuclei.
