To address this problem, we apply the spatial modulation (SM) concept to dual-polarized communications [20], where two components of the polarized signal are transmitted sequentially in two symbol periods, so that there is no mutual interference between the two orthogonally polarized components.
Polarization independent operation can be realized by using orthogonally polarized pumps [10].
In particular, with six coils type magnetometer three Helmholtz coils may be used, located in the center of the magnetic field shielding region [10] or six magnetometers disposed in respective planes and orthogonally oriented with respect to the control windings.

But then, the gas stream meets with the hindrance in the form of orthogonally layed sheets of the block number two slows down and turns up across corrugations flowing around the hindrance.
When the strain path was changed orthogonally, the re-yield stress was lowered and the work-hardening rate at low-plastic strain increased.
Azad et al [11], Used line jets array (four row with each row having twelve jet holes) impinging orthogonally on pinned target surface and observed the heat transfer is increased greatly.

Finite elements were provided with orthogonally anisotropic (orthotropic) properties with the following experimental parameters: modulus of elasticity along the fiber [E.
Isnard et al 2000, 2004 (6,7) were the first to publish intracerebral recordings of insular seizures using depth electrodes inserted orthogonally (ie, along a horizontal axis) through the opercula with a Talairach type of stereotactic frame (16).
