Dear friends i know that a wave is linearly polarized if its components have a phase difference of n*∏ and is circularly polarized if phase difference is n*∏/2. But what if phase difference is neither ∏ nor ∏/2? like for E= a(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{x}exp(-j(βy-∏/4)) + a_{z}exp(-j(βy-∏/2))... thanx in advance....
