Main Article Content
This article presents a study of the electromagnetic re- sponse of a chaotic reverberation chamber (RC) in the pres- ence of losses. By means of simulations and of experi- ments, the fluctuations in the maxima of the field obtained in a conventional mode-stirred RC are compared with those in a chaotic RC in the neighborhood of the Lowest Useable Frequency (LUF). The present work illustrates that the uni- versal spectral and spatial statistical properties of chaotic RCs allow to meet more adequately the criteria required by the Standard IEC 61000-4-21 to perform tests of electro- magnetic compatibility.
