This letter presents results showing improved field uniformity in a reverberation chamber using quadratic residue diffusers. The optimal occupying ratio of the diffusers on one side wall of the chamber is presented. A reverberation chamber is an alternative to the semi-anechoic chamber, which is widely used for the analysis and measurement of electromagnetic interference and immunity. To analyze the field characteristics, quadratic residue diffusers were designed for the 1-3 GHz frequency band, and the FDTD method was used. At 1-3 GHz, the standard deviation of the test volume in the reverberation chamber was investigated. The reverberation chamber had good field uniformity when quadratic residue diffusers occupy 37.5-50% of one side wall of the reverberation chamber; the field uniformity saturated at the diffuser occupancy rate of 75%.
