Hi, shaoslr,

There was a paper [1] in the ILRS workshop in Grasse where J.M.Luck and C.Moore presented some work on polarisation and mentioned this so-called "Arnold angle":

Quote
Arnold also predicts that, in linear polarization, they will be affected by the angle between the satellite's velocity aberration vector and the direction of the polarization vector as it reaches the target, which here will be called the "Arnold angle".
