isPolarizationCapable

System object: phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement
Package: phased

Polarization capability

Syntax

flag = isPolarizationCapable(h)

Description

flag = isPolarizationCapable(h) returns a Boolean value, flag, indicating whether the phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement antenna element supports polarization or not. An antenna element supports polarization if it can create or respond to polarized fields. The phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement object always supports polarization.

Input Arguments

expand all

Short-dipole antenna element specified as a phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement System object™.

Output Arguments

expand all

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

Examples

Show that a phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement antenna supports polarization.

antenna = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement(...
    'FrequencyRange',[100e6 1e9],...
    'AxisDirection','Z');
isPolarizationCapable(antenna)
ans = logical
   1

The returned value of 1 shows that this antenna supports polarization.
