Abstract — This paper describes the polarization of
an antenna.

I. INTRODUCTION
When an antenna radiates the radiated electric and
magnetic fields have a certain bias. Since this field
radiated at large distances can be considered a plane
wave, it may consider that there is only field in directions
perpendicular to the propagation direction (to where the
information is transmitted). So if, for example, we take
propagation direction Z axis only have components of
electric and magnetic field in the X and Y axes
II. THEORY
Depending on how the offset x and y components of the
electric field will have three types of polarization:
Linear: If they are the same phase or in antiphase (offset
= 0 or pi)
Circular: If they are out of phase pi / 2 or 3pi / 2 and
their magnitudes are equal
Elliptical: If they are out of phase and have the same or
different magnitudes.
Most commonly have linear or circular polarization, so
we focus on them.
To understand the concept of polarization is best to see a
few performances:

Linear Polarization:

La importancia de como polariza una antena el
campo eléctrico generado radica en que una antena está
preparada para captar un campo eléctrico de su misma
polarización (principio de reciprocidad). Es decir, que
si una antena
genera un campo eléctrico
con
polarización lineal en transmisión, esa misma antena
usada como antena receptora estará preparada para
captar de forma eficiente un campo eléctrico de su
misma polarización. Esto no impide que pueda captar
parte del campo eléctrico de una antena con distinta
polarización, sino que sólo captará una parte de la señal
recibida.
