Using the reverberation chamber to obtain antenna radiation efficiency is considered. The reverberation chamber, which has for many years been used for electromagnetic compatibility measurements, can also be used with great advantage for antenna measurements since it simulates effectively a uniform multipath propagation environment. How a reverberation chamber can be used to measure the ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna efficiency in a very short time is described. The procedure based on time domain is described and some experimental results are given and compared to measurements obtained by the Wheeler cap method extended by Schantz to UWB antennas.
