We propose to use the polarization of coherent Smith-Purcell radiation (cSPr) to separate the signal from background radiation in a single-shot longitudinal bunch profile monitor. We compare simulation and experimental results for the degree of polarization of cSPr generated by a grating with a 1 mm periodic structure at the LUCX facility, KEK (Japan). Both experiment and simulation show that the majority of the cSPr signal is polarized in the direction parallel to the grating grooves. The degree of polarization predicted by simulation is higher than the measured result, therefore further investigation is needed to resolve this discrepancy.
