PARSAX An Informal Look at Radar Technology and Applications within TU Delft


Bistatic Radar Polarimetry by Zbigniew H. Czyz

The Wexford College Press published in 2008 a book of Zbigniew H. Czyz (Poland) where he analyzed possible approaches for implementation of the radar polarimetry principles to bistatic radar.

  16. Appendices.

Unfortunately, the TU Delft library does not have this book. But there is available on-line report "Fundamentals of Bistatic Radar Polarimetry Using the Poincare Sphere Transformations. A Comparison of the Matrix and Quaternionic Formulation of the Optical and Radar Polarimetry", written in 2002 by the same author 46 pages, which, probably, can give first impression about book contents and author's approach to the problem.

P.S. Even more full version of previously mentioned report is available on-line: "Fundamentals of Bistatic Radar Polarimetry Using the Poincare Sphere Transformations" (1 June 2001) - 247 pages.
