The report describes and theoretically analyzes a simple four-component polarization resolver which splits an arbitrarily polarized input signal into both linear and circular components, readily permitting their comparison. One version of the resolver has provision for local oscillator injection to permit linear conversion to i-f signals for more convenient processing. The same resolver can be used in an electronic polarimeter to obtain an instantaneous picture of input signal polarization, along with continuous indication of sense of the input polarized wave. A bandwidth of 12 percent has been achieved in experimental resolvers at X-band. Author
