Determination of maximum doppler shift in reverberation chamber using level crossing rate
Paper in proceedings, 2011
Doppler spread has been observed in reverberation chambers (RC) with moving mode-stirrers. In this paper, we propose a simple method to determine the maximum Doppler frequency shift in the RC by using level crossing rate (LCR). The Doppler spread bandwidth is twice of the maximum Doppler frequency. RC loading effect on Doppler spread is also studied in this paper. Using the method, it is found that maximum Doppler spread bandwidth tends to reduce when lossy objects are located into the RC, and the larger reduction the more larger lossy objects.
