Reverberation chambers that easily create multipath-rich environments are suggested as test environments for the performance evaluation of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) terminals. However, the propagation environment characteristic is difficult to control in conventional reverberation chambers. In this paper, we propose an improved double-layered reverberation chamber to control the arrival wave distribution in addition to the cross-polarization power ratio (XPR). We show the design method of the double-layered reverberation chamber and the experimental results of the propagation environment control using our constructed measurement system.
