Ratio of vertical to horizontal linear polarization components of a field

`p = polratio(fv)`

returns
the ratio of the vertical to horizontal component of the field or
set of fields contained in `p`

= polratio(`fv`

)`fv`

.

Each column of `fv`

contains the linear polarization
components of a field in the form `[Eh;Ev]`

, where `Eh`

and `Ev`

are
the field’s linear horizontal and vertical polarization components.
The expression of a field in terms of a two-row vector of linear polarization
components is called the *Jones vector formalism*.
The argument `fv`

can refer to either the electric
or magnetic part of an electromagnetic wave.

Each entry in `p`

contains the ratio `Ev/Eh`

of
the components of `fv`

.
