For each application area a renowned researcher introduces the general concepts and then describes the recent advances in that field. The following topics are thus addressed in the context of reverberation chambers in the 9 chapters of the book:
- Calibration of reverberation chambers with the “well stirred condition” method
- Performance assessment of the most popular stirring techniques for broadband tests
- Probabilistic model in the context of radiated susceptibility tests
- Over-the-air testing of wireless devices
- Material absorption and dosimetry for animal exposure
- Characterization of antenna efficiency and radiation pattern
- Radar cross section estimation
Finally, a concluding chapter identifies and explores some of the exciting developments and open issues that represent emerging trends in reverberation chamber research.
The book is aimed at advanced students and researchers in signal processing, antenna design or EMC who need to know about new applications of reverberation chambers.

Guillaume Andrieu was born in Limoges, France, in 1980. He received the Master's degree in Radiofrequencies and Optical Communications from the University of Limoges in 2003, and the Ph.D. degree in Electronics from the IEMN Laboratory at the University of Lille, Villeneuve d'Ascq, France, in 2006 (with also the Renault Technocentre, Guyancourt, France). In 2006, he joined the XLIM Laboratory, University of Limoges, as a Postdoctoral Fellow, where he has been an Associate Professor since 2009. His current research interests include coupling on cables and electromagnetic compatibility testing, including reverberation chambers and bulk current injection tests.
