A study of the field statistics in nested frequency stirred reverberation chambers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper describes the underlying statistics of the field in nested frequency-stirred reverberation chambers. The hypothesis of the probability distribution function (PDF) of a component of the frequency-stirred electric field is provided and then examined by a number of goodness of fit tests. The results show that for an electrically large enclosure nested in a larger reverberation chamber, the PDF of the internal electric field will evolve from Rayleigh to double Rayleigh with the shrinking size of the interconnection apertures. This has implications for
immunity measurements of electronic systems housed in shielding enclosures.
