 Helicity is an important experimental observable, ​ which describes the projection of the [[basic_notions:​spin|spin]] onto the direction of the momentum. Moreover, there is a close connection to the more fundamental concept [[advanced_notions:​chirality|chirality]],​ because for massless particles the chirality and helicity are the same.  Helicity is an important experimental observable, ​ which describes the projection of the [[basic_notions:​spin|spin]] onto the direction of the momentum.
