Develops methods for treating polarization problems in antennas, radar, radio astronomy, and lasers. Develops appropriate descriptors for elliptically polarized waves and antennas and gives polarization characteristics for several useful antennas. An extensive presentation of polarization changes by reflection is given, including scattering matrices and reflections from an arbitrarily oriented plane. Partial polarization is discussed, as well as techniques for measuring antenna polarization.
