Anechoic chamber used to study electromagnetic waves

Students in Fresno State’s Lyles College of Engineering work with Dr. Youngwook Kim, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, in the University’s anechoic chamber to measure human body reflections, radar range, radiation patterns.

The chamber is a room designed to simulate the free space of infinite dimension. Insulated from exterior noise with conductive foam, the room absorbs electromagnetic waves generated inside.

Students in the Lyles College use the anechoic chamber for a variety of purposes, such as studying how electromagnetic waves like cell phone and Wi-Fi signals travel and reflect, and how to measure them through radio frequency devices.
