1. A device for determining at least one characteristic of electromagnetic radiation emitted from a test object, said device comprising:

  • a support for receiving the object;

    a network of probes distributed at a given pitch along a substantially circular arc, a main axis of the support being disposed in a plane formed by the network of probes or in a plane parallel to the plane formed by the network of probes; and

    means for providing a plurality of measurements using the network of probes, the plurality of measurements corresponding to a plurality of angular positions of a given one of the network of probes relative to the test object, and including;

    means for pivoting the network of probes about a point located in the plane formed by the network of probes or about a point located in the plane parallel to the plane formed by the network of probes to vary an angle formed between the given one of the network of probes and the main axis of the support in a manner that provides a total number of measurements in the plurality of measurements that is greater than a total number of probes in the network of probes.
