# Measuring Beam Polarization Profile with p-Carbon Polarimeters

# Two-dimensional case

Let's assume the polarization and intensity profiles have a gaussian shape:

Since we are interested only in the width of the polarization profile with respect to the intensity one we can use the following relations:

Integrating from **Failed to parse (MathML with SVG or PNG fallback (recommended for modern browsers and accessibility tools): Invalid response ("Math extension cannot connect to Restbase.") from server "https://wikimedia.org/api/rest_v1/":): {\displaystyle -\infty}**
to over both dimensions we get for the polarization weighted with intensity of either one or both beams:

As we normaly measure the average polarization given by it is trivial to get the equations for re-weighting factors **Failed to parse (MathML with SVG or PNG fallback (recommended for modern browsers and accessibility tools): Invalid response ("Math extension cannot connect to Restbase.") from server "https://wikimedia.org/api/rest_v1/":): {\displaystyle k_{SSA}}**
