The reverberation chamber is a test environment that is constructed as an alternative to a fully

reflective or semi-reflective room, coated with internal and external materials with high conductivity, and has

a homogeneous electric field structure limited by certain standards. The biggest advantage is that the

installation costs are much lower than the full non-reflective room. It is necessary to obtain uniformity of

electric field in the room so that a room can be a reverberation chamber. A reverberation chamber basically

contains a few components such as stirrer, transmitter antenna and receiver antenna. According to the

optimization of the components, the uniformity of the electric field inside the room can be provided. The

parameters such as position, shape, size, angle of the stirrer which is one of the most important elements in the

chamber, affect the uniformity of the electric field. In this study, the effect of the stirrer shape on the electric

field uniformity was investigated and the results were compared.
