The purpose of this recommended practice is to recommend realistic and repeatable criteria, as well as recommended test methods, to characterize the absorber characteristics applied to a metallic surface. This recommended practice covers the parameters and test procedures for the evaluation of radio-frequency (RF) absorbers over the frequency range of 30 MHz to 40 GHz. Examples include those used for radiated emissions and immunity testing of electronic products or general antenna measurements. The evaluation measurements can be performed in frequency and/or time domain.

IEEE Recommended Practice for Radio-Frequency (RF) Absorber Evaluation in the Range of 30 MHz to 5 GHz
Realistic and repeatable criteria, as well as recommended test methods, for characteriz-ing the absorption properties of typical anechoic chamber linings applied to a metallic surface aredescribed. Parameters and test procedures are described for the evaluation of RF absorbers to beused for radiated emissions and radiated susceptibility testing of electronic products, in the ab-sorber manufacturer and/or absorber user environment, over the frequency range of 30 MHz to5 GHz.
