 (pō′lər-ĭ-zā′shən)
n.
1. The production or condition of polarity, as:
a. A process or state in which rays of light exhibit different properties in different directions, especially the state in which all the vibration takes place in one plane.
b. The partial or complete polar separation of the positive and negative electric charges in a nuclear, atomic, molecular, or chemical system.
2. A division into two conflicting or contrasting groups.

Besides, the current vectors show again that port 1 is responsible for vertical polarization, and port 2 contributes to the horizontal polarization mode.
Comparing (19) with the reflection coefficients in [28] shows that the two are identical for the horizontal polarization case but have a 180-degree phase difference for the vertical polarization case.

But by separating the two components, the spin Hall effect would spoil this symmetry and introduce a small vertical polarization, the team expected.
In response to this alert, the Bluetooth units can transmit and receive in predominantly horizontal polarization mode, until the oven is off (this will enable a diversity against the predominantly vertical polarization of EM emissions from the ovens).
If the vertically polarized component of the received signal is retransmitted with horizontal polarization, and the horizontal with vertical polarization, the received signal will be retransmitted cross-polarized to the received signal, as shown in Figure 5.
