isPolarizationCapable

System object: phased.PartitionedArray
Package: phased

Polarization capability

Syntax

flag = isPolarizationCapable(h)

Description

flag = isPolarizationCapable(h) returns a Boolean value, flag, indicating whether the array supports polarization. An array supports polarization if all its constituent sensor elements support polarization.

Input Arguments

expand all

Partitioned array specified as a phased.PartitionedArray System object™.

Output Arguments

expand all

Polarization-capability flag returned as a Boolean value. This value is true, if the array supports polarization or false, if it does not.

Examples

expand all

Determine whether a partitioned array of phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElements supports polarization.

antenna = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement('FrequencyRange',[1e9 10e9]);
ulaarray = phased.ULA(4,'Element',antenna);
partitionedarray = phased.PartitionedArray('Array',ulaarray,...
     'SubarraySelection',[1 1 0 0; 0 0 1 1]);
isPolarizationCapable(partitionedarray)
ans = logical
   1

The returned value 1 shows that this array supports polarization.
