Abstract

In this paper we present an expression for two threshold metrics of a loaded reverberation chamber. One metric is based on the chamber quality factor (Q) and the other is based on a useable volume of a loaded reverberation chamber. These metrics are baseline quantities that must be exceeded in order to have an effective reverberation chamber. We present data of these metrics for a reverberation chamber loaded with spheres composed of lossy materials.
