Polarizations

Some articles on polarization, polarizations:

Synthetic Aperture Radar - More Complex Operation - Polarimetry
... Radar waves have a polarization ... such as grass often reflect different polarizations with different intensities ... Some materials will also convert one polarization into another ...
Gupta–Bleuler Formalism
... k0 component, the energy, is positive and εμ is the unit polarization vector and the index μ ranges from 0 to 3 ... form gives positive norms for spatial polarizations but negative norms for timelike polarizations ... Not to mention a physical photon only has two transverse polarizations, not four ...
Solid Oxide Fuel Cell - Polarizations - Activation Polarization
... The activation polarization is the result of the kinetics involved with the electrochemical reactions ... that must be overcome in order to proceed and this barrier leads to the polarization ... where typically the rate limiting step is responsible for the polarization ...
Optical Rotation - Theory
... Any linear polarization of light can be written as an equal combination of right-hand (RHC) and left-hand circularly (LHC) polarized light where is the electric field of the light ... The relative phase between the two circular polarizations, sets the direction of the linear polarization to ... optically active material, the two circular polarizations experience different refractive indices ...
Vector Soliton
... shape but have effectively only one (scalar) polarization component, while vector solitons have two distinct polarization components ... a medium with birefringence, the orthogonal polarizations can copropagate as one unit without splitting due to the strong cross-phase modulation and coherent energy exchange between the two ...
