Convert linear component representation of field to circular component representation
cfv = pol2circpol(fv)
Express a 45° linear polarized field in terms of right-circular and left-circular components.
fv = [2;2] cfv = pol2circpol(fv)
fv = 2 2 cfv = 1.4142 - 1.4142i 1.4142 + 1.4142i
Specify two input fields
[1;1] in the same matrix. The first field is a linear representation of a left-circularly polarized field and the second is a linearly polarized field.
fv=[1+1i 1;-1+1i 1] cfv = pol2circpol(fv)
fv = 1.0000 + 1.0000i 1.0000 + 0.0000i -1.0000 + 1.0000i 1.0000 + 0.0000i cfv = 1.4142 + 1.4142i 0.7071 - 0.7071i 0.0000 + 0.0000i 0.7071 + 0.7071i
fv— Field vector in linear component representation
Field vector in its linear component representation specified
as a 1-by-N complex row vector or a 2-by-N complex
fv is a matrix, each column in
a field in the form of
the field's horizontal and vertical polarization components.
fv is a vector, each entry in
assumed to contain the polarization ratio,
For a row vector, the value
Inf designates the
case when the ratio is computed for a field with
Eh = 0.
Complex Number Support: Yes
cfv— Field vector in circular component representation
Field vector in circular component representation returned as
a 1-by-N complex-valued row vector or 2-by-Ncomplex-valued
cfv has the same dimensions as
fv is a matrix, each column of
the circular polarization components,
of the field where
the left-circular and right-circular polarization components. If
a row vector, then
cfv is also a row vector and
each entry in
cfv contains the circular polarization
ratio, defined as
