If you evaluate this integral separately for x, y and z components ( since r = (x,y,z))

and find that there is only a z component (that the x,y components are zero)

does having only Pz mean that the direction of the oscillating dipole is the z direction (vertical)?

And that would mean that the dipole would radiate in the horizontal plane with vertical polarisation right?
