Reverberation chamber for OTA measurements: The history of a dream!
Paper in proceedings, 2017

In the late 1990's Professor Per-Simon Kildal got the idea that reverberation chambers could be used for characterizing small antennas and mobile devices. Many thought the idea was crazy but he was persistent and worked hard to realize his dream to build a small chamber that could be used by the wireless industry. This paper gives a short history of the research at Chalmers and the creation of the company Bluetest that both were instrumental for realizing the dream.
