The polarisation performance of a symmetric reflector antenna illuminated by an ideal feed is limited by depolarisation introduced by the reflector, even if other sources of cross-polarisation are negligible. It is shown that depolarisation can theoretically be eliminated by the use of anisotropic reflectors.
