magazine ran a short feature titled "Outer
," in the January 2013 edition. The main photo is
a shot of the inside of the RF anechoic chamber at the Technical University
of Denmark (DTU). Its thousands of RF absorbing pyramids are painted
a dark, electric blue with black tips, which makes for a very stunningly
artistic image. Narcotics-inspired sculptors of sculptures could scarcely
improve on the visual impact of this imminently and supremely functional
structure. Interestingly, I could not find a single picture of the anechoic
chamber on the DTU website other than a small section of it from before
the new paint job. According to my search for the original, the one
appears to have originated on the website of photographer
Alastair Philip Wiper
, where many high resolution views of the anechoic
chamber's inside are posted. A steel Faraday cage encloses the chamber,
but I could not find any photos of it. A picture of the power, data,
and RF cabling interface(s) would have been interesting to see.
Be sure to look at the bottom of
Alastair Philip Wiper's page for some rather cool other photo collections.
