This Hyperphysics page, from Georgia State University, describes how light behaves when passing through a pair of polarizers oriented perpendicular to each other. The website also gives an explanation of what happens when a third polarizer is added at a particular orientation between the two. Several photographs and drawings are included as well as links to related subjects for additional information.
