15 (a) A wave is said to be circularly polarized in the X - y plane if h = h and h, = Show that for such a wave, the ellipse in Fig. 9.1 rotates without changing shape. (b) A wave is said to be elliptically polarized with principal axes X and y if h = where a is some real number, and hIT = Show that if h, ty = XX , where a is a complex number (the general case for a plane wave), new axes x' and y can be found for which the wave is elliptically polarized with principal axes X and y'. Show that circular and linear polarization are special cases of elliptical.
