isPolarizationCapable

System object: phased.CrossedDipoleAntennaElement
Package: phased

Polarization capability

Syntax

flag = isPolarizationCapable(h)

Description

flag = isPolarizationCapable(h) returns a Boolean value, flag, indicating whether the phased.CrossedDipoleAntennaElement System object™ supports polarization. An antenna element supports polarization if it can create or respond to polarized fields. This object supports only polarized fields.

Input Arguments

expand all

h — Crossed-dipole antenna element

Crossed-dipole antenna element specified as a phased.CrossedDipoleAntennaElementSystem object.

Output Arguments

expand all

flag — Polarization-capability flag

Polarization-capability returned as a Boolean value true if the antenna element supports polarization or false if it does not. Because the phased.CrossedDipoleAntennaElement antenna element supports polarization, the returned value is always true.

Examples

Crossed-Dipole Antenna Element Supports Polarization

Determine whether the phased.CrossedDipoleAntennaElement antenna element supports polarization.

h = phased.CrossedDipoleAntennaElement;
isPolarizationCapable(h)
ans =

     1

The returned value true (1) shows that the crossed-dipole antenna element supports polarization.
