Polarization (also polarisation) is a property of certain types of waves that describes the orientation of their oscillations. ...
(Polarization (abelian variety)) In mathematics, particularly in algebraic geometry, complex analysis and number theory, an abelian variety is a projective algebraic variety that is also an algebraic group, i.e., has a group law that can be defined by regular functions. ...
(Polarization (corrosion)) Polarization in corrosion refers to any changes in the equillibruim potential of an electrochemical reaction.
(Polarization (politics)) In politics, polarization (or polarisation) is the process by which the public opinion divides and goes to the extremes. It can also refer to when the extreme factions of a political party gain dominance in a party. ...
(Polarization (racial)) Racial polarization is the process whereby a population, the individuals of which have varying degrees of diversity in their ancestry, is divided into separate, and distinct (from each other) racial groups.
Alternative spelling of polarised; Describing something that possesses a distinctive polarization; Describing a group or situation characterized by being at two (or more) extremes; Alternative spelling of polarised
(polarization) the production, or the condition of polarity; the production of polarized light; the direction in which the electric field of an electromagnetic wave points; the separation of positive and negative charges in a nucleus, atom, molecule or system; the grouping of opinions into two ...
(polarize) To cause to have a polarization; To cause a group to be divided into extremes
(polarizing) That polarizes
(polarization) Design technique used to increase the capacity of the satellite transmission channels by reusing the satellite transponder frequencies. ...
(polarization) A special property of light; light has three properties, brightness, color and polarization. Polarization is a condition in which the planes of vibration of the various rays in a light beam are at least partially aligned.
(Polarization) The change from the open-circuit electrode potential as the result of the passage of current.
(polarization) whether an antenna transmits or receives radio signals best in vertical or horizontal position
(Polarization) Voltage deviation from equilibrium caused by charge or discharge.
(Polarization) this is the orientation to oscillations put out by magnetic waves. In a RADAR signal the electric field emitted by the signal is perpendicular to the direction of that signal. There are three main types of polarization used by RADAR: circular, linear, and random.
(Polarization) It is the figure traced out in time by the instantaneous electric field vector associated with the radiation field produced by an antenna. ...
(POLARIZATION) (Cross Pol) – Satellite dishes transmit and receive on horizontal and vertical planes. These planes must be lined up with the orbiting satellite perfectly, or the signal is quickly lost. ...
(POLARIZATION) Describes the type of hand range a player is holding. A player holding a polarized range is playing only super strong hands and stone-cold bluffs. A depolarized range refers to a wider range, in addition to the polarized range, to include more of the mid-to-strong range. ...
(Polarization) A filter applied to sunglasses to reduce or eliminate glare—that is, rays bouncing off reflective surfaces such as water, ice, or metal. Reflected light rays become concentrated on the horizontal plane, which is why they have a stabbing effect on the eye. ...
(Polarization) A mechanical design that ensure that two halves of the connectors mate in the same position. See Key, Orientation
(Polarization) A state in which two members (or two groups) in a system relate in opposition to or in competition with each other, to the point where each party's access to the Self is constrained by fear that the other party will win or take over.
