Electromagnetic Reverberation chambers – What’s next?

​Welcome to a seminar held by the Electromagnetics Laboratory (abbreviated EM-Lab), which is an assembly of senior researchers and teachers with activities in the scientific field of electromagnetics. EM-Lab is hosted by the Department of Electrical Engineering at Chalmers.​ 
Speaker: Dr. Philippe Besnier, Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications of Rennes (IETR), Rennes, France

Title: Electromagnetic Reverberation chambers – What’s next?

Abstract: Reverberation chambers are described in the literature back to 1970s and most of their properties were already described in acoustics. Their behavior is also closely related to diffuse or chaotic fields as described in different branches of physics. From an engineering point of view, it makes it looks as a fascinating tool for applied research. In some way, we may see a reverberation chamber as a sensor of radiated, scattered or absorbed energy. We first describe their main principles of operation.  Then, we highlight some advanced applications, including specific EMC measurements, antenna characterization, animal exposure, and radar cross-section measurements. Eventually, we describe new perspectives.

Biography: Philippe Besnier received the Ph. D. degree in electronics from the University of Lille in 1993. Following a one-year period at ONERA, Meudon as an assistant scientist in the EMC division, he was with the laboratory of radio-propagation and electronics (LRPE), University of Lille, as a researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) from 1994 to 1997. From 1997 to 2002, Philippe Besnier was the director of Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches en Protection Electromagnétique (CERPEM): a non-for-profit organization for research, expertise and training in EMC and related activities, based in Laval, France. He co-founded TEKCEM in 1998 a small business company specialized in turnkey systems for EMC measurements. Back to CNRS in 2002, he has been since then with the Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications of Rennes (IETR). Philippe Besnier was appointed as CNRS senior researcher in 2013. He was co-head of the “antennas and microwave devices” research department of IETR between 2012 and 2016. Since July 2017, he is now a deputy director of IETR. His research activities are mainly dedicated to interference analysis on cable harnesses (including electromagnetic topology), theory and application of reverberation chambers, near-field probing and uncertainty quantification in EMC modeling.
