This letter finds the relation between different parameters that characterize the reverberation chamber as a channel emulator for over-the-air (OTA) testing of wireless devices and components. It is shown experimentally for the first time that the coherence bandwidth is proportional to the average mode bandwidth of the chamber. Both coherence bandwidth and average mode bandwidth increase when the chamber is loaded with absorbing objects, and thereby, the reverberation chamber can be controlled to emulate many different real-life environments. The relationship between RMS delay spread and coherence bandwidth are found from the measured channel response and are equal to the theoretical relation for isotropic multipath environments, being within previously published fundamental limits.
