3    Wave, antenna, and radar polarization

image

The subject of polarization for completely and partially polarized waves has been extensively treated throughout the literature (e.g. Mott 1992). This chapter presents a classical approach to wave and antenna polarization for readers who have not been previously exposed to this topic. The first goal is to derive the voltage form of the dual-polarized radar range equation for scattering by a single particle in both the linear and circular bases. This is followed by a generalization of the usual (single-polarized) power form of the radar range equation to include the concepts of copolar and cross-polar ...
