Validation of a one-antenna reverberation-chamber technique for estimating the total and radiation efficiency of an antenna

Abstract

Because of the statistical environment created inside a reverberation chamber, they offer a unique test facility. In particular, these chambers are ideally suited for performing radiated power measurements of either an antenna or device under test, and as such, it is possible to determine the efficiency of antennas. In previous work we presented a one-antenna approach that allows for determining the efficiency of a single antenna under test without the need for a reference antenna. In this paper, we validate this one-antenna approach by showing comparisons with other methods (comparing measurements made in different test facilities and comparisons to other techniques, including numerical calculations) for various antennas.
