Recently, a swept-frequency OHI was described where the absorber panel is placed against the aperture of a well-matched horn.[3] This aperture-matched exponential horn technique offers a reflectivity level lower than -35 dB and has the advantage of using fairly small areas (approximately the size of the horn aperture) of absorbers.
