A novel polarization enabled two-phase cooperation framework for cognitive radio networking is proposed in this paper. By leveraging the degrees of freedom provided by orthogonally dual-polarized antennas, secondary users can relay the traffic of primary users and transmit their own in the same time slot without interference. To evaluate the performance of the proposed framework, a sum throughput maximization problem is formulated. By using the geometric programming algorithms, the nonlinear and non-convex optimization problem is solved by applying different power constraints for high and medium (or low) signal-to-noise ratio regimes.
