This paper proposes various metrics to characterize space-time focusing resulting from application of time reversal techniques in richly scattering media. The concept and goals of time reversal are presented. Pertinent metrics describing both the time and space focusing effects are outlined. Two examples based on a model of discrete and continuous scattering media are used to illustrate how the proposed metrics vary as a function of various system and channel parameters, such as the bandwidth, delay and angle spreads, number of antennas, etc.
