Fig. 7


Schematic illustration of the decomposition of the line of sight complex polarization vector (in the (Q, U) space) into a random walk process through four turbulent layers, shown for two neighbouring pixels at two frequencies, ν1 and ν2. The integrated polarization pseudo-vectors are affected by the polarization angle fluctuations, leading to a decorrelation between the two frequencies.
