A Quad-Mode Antenna for Accurate Polarimetric Measurements Over an Ultra-Wide Field-of-View
Paper in proceedings, 2014

The polarimetric performance of a quad-mode antenna element, consisting of a pair of crossed dipoles and an integrated monopole fed by a quadraxial transmission line, is analysed. Results are compared to a conventional dual-polarised antenna consisting of two orthogonal dipoles. The presented study shows that the quad-mode antenna effectively doubles the polarimetric capabilities of a dual-polarised antenna over the hemispherical field of view.
