Array polarization capability

Since R2021a



capflag = isPolarizationCapable(array) returns a Boolean value, capflag, indicating whether the array supports polarization. An array supports polarization if it can create or respond to polarized fields.


collapse all

Show that an array of phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement antenna elements supports polarization.

antenna = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement(...
    'FrequencyRange',[1e9 10e9]);
array = phased.ULA('NumElements',3,'Element',antenna);
ans = logical

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

Input Arguments

collapse all

Array, specified as a Phased Array System Toolbox System object.

Output Arguments

collapse all

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