Say I have a polarization [3i, 2], How do I find a polarization that is orthogonal?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that,

[tex]AA^{\cdot }\; +\; BB^{\cdot }\; =\; 0[/tex]

But my problem is that it yields one equation and two unknowns which I cant solve for. Furthermore, I am a bit confused on the representation of [3i,2] I understand [1,(+/-)i] is circularly polarized light but what about when the i is atop?
