In this study, the authors present the latest developments on the measurements for the shielding effectiveness (SE) of gaskets and materials in reverberation chambers (RCs). A variant method, where the insertion loss of the fixture is achieved from the SE of the fixture with no sample in the aperture is found; it is appropriate for gaskets and for any flat material having a sufficiently high reflectivity at least on one side. A simple and usable condition under which the simplest method for the SE measurements of gaskets and materials in RCs can be used is also given, as well as particular cases where it can be directly applied are shown. This method, whose applicability is enhanced in this study, can be used for gaskets and any flat sample. Such developments simplify measurement setup and associated procedures. Comparisons of results support the methods for the SE measurements of gaskets and material in RCs shown in this study.
