An anechoic chamber is a room that is specifically designed to measure the radiation patterns of an antenna and to monitor electromagnetic interference. What is unique about this chamber is the fact that it has been electrically sealed and this helps to reduce the likelihood of external signals entering into the structure.
Walls are Sensitive
In the chamber, you will find walls that look like they are made of Styrofoam. These cones are actually carbon permeated, that is designed to absorb any radioactive waves that are in the room. While they are very powerful, they can fall apart with a single touch. Because of this, it is important that in this room, you do what you can to avoid any unnecessary contact with them.
Measurements in the Anechoic Chamber
In the room, you will begin to see how antenna radiation patterns normally form. What is important to note is that these antennas are…
