System object: phased.OmnidirectionalMicrophoneElement
Package: phased

Polarization capability


flag = isPolarizationCapable(microphone)


flag = isPolarizationCapable(microphone) returns a Boolean value, flag, indicating whether the phased.OmnidirectionalMicrophoneElement supports polarization. An element supports polarization if it can create or respond to polarized fields. This microphone element, as all microphone elements, does not support polarization.

Input Arguments

expand all

Omni-directional microphone element specified as a phased.OmnidirectionalMicrophoneElement System object™

Output Arguments

expand all

Polarization-capability returned as a Boolean value true if the microphone element supports polarization or false if it does not. Because the phased.OmnidirectionalMicrophoneElement object does not support polarization, flag is always returned as false.

Determine whether a phased.OmnidirectionalMicrophoneElement microphone element supports polarization.

microphone = phased.OmnidirectionalMicrophoneElement;
ans = logical

The returned value 0 shows that the omnidirectional microphone element does not support polarization.
