I know nothing about polarization and noncolinear calculations, but
what you need in a polarization calculation is a sequence of scalar
between electronic states at different k-points. In the case of
calculations, electronic states are spinors and are expanded into plane
waves with both spin-up and spin-down components. Coefficients 1 to npw
are for spin-up plane waves, coefficients npwx+1 to npwx+npw are for
spin-down plane waves. Scalar products are summed over the two sets.
