polarization opt imal solut ion echo SCR PSM
It is discussed in the paper how to get the opt imal polarimetric state of the transmit ting and receiving antennas w hen the SCR ( the ratio of signa-l to-clut ter) is max imum no mat ter w hether the Jones polarizat ion scat tering mat rix es ( PSM) of the echo signals and clutters are symmet ric or not. T he solution w ith the detailed processing and corresponding simulat ion data is presented based on the former work. With the algorithm, the Jones PSM can be transformed to be symmetric. T he numeric simulation verifies the algorithm.
