The array antenna is x-polarized, and the plane of polarization
is the xoz plane.
"A tourmaline plate, cut parallel to the optic axis, absorbs, at ordinary temperatures, more of the rays which strike it normally, if the plane of polarization
of these is parallel to the axis than when it is perpendicular to it.
Propagation of the plane of polarization
of light corresponding to [E.sub.[parallel]] is influenced by refractive index [n.sub.[parallel]].
If one of these compounds twisted the plane of polarization
clockwise, the other would twist it counterclockwise.
Spots with an "up" magnetization rotate the light's plane of polarization
in one direction, while "down" spots rotate it in the opposite direction.
Sexually mature animals were examined with an imaging polarimeter capable of measuring the intensity, partial polarization (also termed "percent polarization"), and direction of linear polarization (also termed "plane of polarization
," "orientation of polarization" and "e-vector orientation") at each pixel in an image (9, 10).
If an incident beam is linearly polarized with polarization direction at angle [alpha] with respect to the fast direction, its plane of polarization
is thus rotated by an angle 2[alpha], making a half-waveplate an effective polarization rotator.
