Definitions for "Polarization"
A peculiar affection or condition of the rays of light or heat, in consequence of which they exhibit different properties in different directions.
The result of light being passed through a filter that makes the light travel in all different directions, therefore making different rays of the light behave differently from one another. The filter is called a polarizing filter.
In a given direction, the polarization of the wave radiated by the antenna. Alternatively, the polarization of a plane wave incident from the given direction which results in maximum available power at the antenna terminals.
An effect produced upon the plates of a voltaic battery, or the electrodes in an electrolytic cell, by the deposition upon them of the gases liberated by the action of the current. It is chiefly due to the hydrogen, and results in an increase of the resistance, and the setting up of an opposing electro-motive force, both of which tend materially to weaken the current of the battery, or that passing through the cell.
Change in voltage at terminals when a specified current is flowing; equal to the difference between the actual and the equilibrium (constant open circuit condition) potentials of the plates, exclusive of the internal resistance drop.
Electrical potential reduction of electrodes typically arising from prolonged or rapid discharge of the battery.
showing two contrary directions and tendencies. In political speech, the term has come to refer to the process by which two sides in a dispute or a political issue move steadily further apart so that no rational solution or dialogue seems possible. One could say for example that American politics today is undergoing a sharp polarization due in part to the divisive and shrill tone of much public debate. When one side makes a provocative or extreme point, the other side finds itself responding in kind in order to be heard, so a polarization is set in motion.
Polarization of a conflict occurs as a conflict rises in intensity (that is, escalates). Often as escalation occurs, more and more people get involved, and take strong positions either on one side or the other. "Polarization" refers to this process in which people move toward extreme positions ("poles"), leaving fewer and fewer people "in the middle."

The orientation of a flat cable or a rectangular connector. e.g., for gray flat cable, the colored edge indicating the number one conductor.
The orientation of a flat cable or a rectangular connector. For flat cable, the index edge is used as a reference.
The arrangement of mating connectors such that the connectors can be mated in only one orientation.
appearance of a dipole momentum in an atom bond caused by different electronegativity
a mapping which associates a pair of booleans to every variable
The charge or voltage on a condenser microphone element.
