System object: phased.UCA
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 when all of its constituent sensor elements support polarization.

Input Arguments

expand all

Uniform line array specified as a phased.UCA System object.

Output Arguments

expand all

Polarization-capability flag returned as a boolean value true when the array supports polarization or false when it does not.

Examples

Determine whether a UCA array of 7 short-dipole antenna elements supports polarization. The array radius is one-half meter.

antenna = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement('FrequencyRange',[1e9 10e9]);
array = phased.UCA('NumElements',7,'Radius',0.5,'Element',antenna);
isPolarizationCapable(array)
ans = logical
   1

The returned value 1 from isPolarizationCapable shows that a UCA of short-dipole antenna elements supports polarization.
