  • Airborne Co-polarization and Cross-Polarization Observations of the Ocean-Surface NRCS at C-Band

    Airborne co-polarization and cross-polarization observations of ocean surface normalized radar cross section (NRCS) were conducted over the North Atlantic during January and February 2015. Observations were made using the University of Massachusetts' Imaging Wind and Rain Airborne Profiler (IWRAP) radar system and a prototype antenna for the next-generation European scatterometer aboard MetOp-SG. Both were installed on a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) WP-3D research aircraft to characterize the wind response of the ocean-surface cross-polarization NRCS. During the flights, numerous constant-roll-angle circle maneuvers were performed at several different angles to collect NRCS measurements over a range of incidence angles. Surface winds at speeds between 8 and 34 ms-1were observed at incidence angles from 20° to 60° at all polarization combinations. The majority of measurements fell between 8 and 20 ms-1. Wind-direction dependence similar to copolarized NRCS was observed in the cross-polarized (VH) NRCS. The amplitude of the VH NRCS with respect to direction is less than that of copolarized NRCS at all wind speeds. Incidence angle dependence was also observed in the VH NRCS at all wind speeds. As a function of wind speed, the mean VH NRCS (A0) has a similar shape to the VV NRCS. The VH NRCS appears to not saturate at most incidence angles, unlike the VV and HH NRCS. VH and HH geophysical model functions (GMFs) were developed as functions of wind speed, incidence angle, and wind-relative azimuth for the wind speeds and incidence angles observed.

  • Light polarization modulation based on microfiber and magnetic fluid

    We experimentally demonstrate a new method for modulating the light polarization state of the fiber. Both of the light polarization degree and polarization direction can be modulated. In the experiment, microfiber is immersed into the magnetic fluid (MF). When there is external magnetic field, magnetic nanoparticles of the MF generate magneto-optical dichroism and a non- circular symmetric distribution around microfiber. The light polarization state is modulated when the light passes the microfiber. When the external magnetic field rotates from 0<sup>o</sup> to 360<sup>o</sup>, the light polarization modulating exerts good polarization direction response.

The results suggest that micromachines may be useful in manipulating polarization states in lightwave systems and may thus lead to smaller and cheaper polarization-mode dispersion-compensators.

Optical polarization properties of the deposited film have been studied by the modulation-polarization spectroscopy technique. Low-dielectric properties and internal porosity structure of the zeolite on Si wafer can be obtained.

  • Planar four-port quadri-polarization slot antenna for millimeter wave application

    This paper presents a planar, vialess printed slot dipole antenna with polarization switchable characteristic. The proposed design comprises four input ports, and each input ports corresponds to different polarizations such as horizontal polarization, vertical polarization, right-handed circular polarization, and left-handed circular polarization. Because lumped diodes are not available in millimeter wave frequency band, polarization diversity antenna designs using diodes are not applicable. The proposed design does not require PIN diodes and DC biasing circuits, which makes it suitable to be used at higher frequency band. It can be easily printed on a circuit board and integrated with RF circuits using flip chip. The low cost and easy implement characteristic enables polarization agile antenna design for millimeter wave frequency band.

  • Simultaneous monitoring of both optical signal-to-noise ratio and polarization-mode dispersion using polarization scrambling and polarization beam splitting

    This paper proposes a simple method to monitor both optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) and polarization-mode dispersion (PMD) simultaneously using a polarization-scrambling module followed by polarization beam splitting. OSNR and PMD are obtained from interaction terms between two orthogonal polarization arms. Monitored OSNR and PMD are independent of each other. Experimental results are demonstrated in a 10-Gb/s nonreturn-to-zero (NRZ) system with OSNR from 18 to 36 dB and PMD from 0 to 70 ps.

  • Source Current Polarization Impact on the Cross-Polarization Definition of Practical Antenna Elements: Theory and Applications

    With the growing interest in polarization diversity in communications and radar systems, the use of Ludwig's second and third definitions has become controversial among scientists and antenna engineers. Therefore, this paper is an attempt to clarify some of the ambiguity and confusion caused by these definitions. A detailed comparison of Ludwig's second and thirrd definitions of cross polarization, as applied to linearly polarized antennas, was performed. The results show that, in the diagonal plane, Ludwig's second definition leads to a lower crosspolarization level than the third definition for x- or y-polarized current sources. For a Huygens source, by Ludwig's third definition, the radiation pattern has a lower cross-polarization level than that obtained by Ludwig's second definition. For some applications, the antenna is usually placed in the yz plane. Therefore, new polarization bases are proposed according to which the source is used as a reference, and also on how this source is oriented in the yz plane. To complement the theoretical framework demonstrated in this contribution and to provide readers with a better and simpler understanding of the crosspolarization definition, the analysis of several practical antennas for diverse applications was presented. Numerical and measured radiation patterns of wire and printed dipoles, rectangular patch, pyramidal horn, and open-ended rectangular waveguide (OEWG) antennas were investigated according to the polarization formulations presented in this paper. In addition, a dual-polarized element and a dual- polarized active phased array at broadside were utilized to generalize the application.

  • Polarization Beam Splitter With Different Core Widths and Its Application to Dual-Polarization Optical Hybrid

    We investigated the core-width dependence of the birefringence of silica-based waveguides with different relative refractive index differences (Δ), namely a 0.75%-Δ GeO2-doped waveguide and a 5%-Δ Ta2O5-doped waveguide. We revealed that the birefringence of the 0.75%-Δ GeO2-doped waveguide is almost the same as the stress-induced birefringence and that the 5%-Δ Ta2O5-doped waveguide has a large geometrical birefringence. By utilizing the core-width dependence of the birefringence, we have successfully demonstrated a 0.75%-Δ polarization beam splitter (PBS) with an operating wavelength range of more than 150 nm and a dual-polarization optical hybrid including a compact 5%-Δ PBS with a polarization extinction ratio of more than 20 dB over the C-band.

  • Polarization mode dispersion tolerance of bandwidth-efficient multilevel modulation schemes

    We have identified polarization division multiplex to be advantageous for capacity doubling of fiber spans with a given amplification bandwidth, due to its superior sensitivity, good polarization mode dispersion tolerance and terminal equipment simplicity.

  • Complete Characterization of Polarization-Maintaining Fibers Using Distributed Polarization Analysis

    We present methods and processes of using a ghost-peak-free distributed polarization crosstalk analyzer (DPXA) to accurately obtain all polarization related parameters of polarization-maintaining (PM) fibers. We show that by first inducing a series equidistant periodic polarization crosstalk peaks along a PM fiber and then measuring the positions and the widths of these peaks using the analyzer, all birefringence related parameters of the PM fiber, including group birefringence, group birefringence variation along the fiber, group birefringence dispersion, and group birefringence temperature coefficient, can be accurately obtained. We further show that the DPXA has the ability to identify and eliminate polarization crosstalk contributions of connectors or splices in the measurement system and therefore can be used to obtain high accuracy measurement of the polarization extinction ratio (PER) of PM fibers. Finally, we propose a set of parameters based on the distributed polarization analysis to quantitatively evaluate the quality of PM fibers. We believe that the methods and processes described in this paper can be widely applied in the industry for the complete characterization of PM optical fibers.
