- Improving Temperature Measurement of Low Emissivity Targe... — Helpful Tips for Users From FLIR Meer, Belgium — FLIR Systems has published a new technical note that investigates and describes how to use low-cost materials to increase target emissivity to enable accurate measurement using a thermal imaging camera. Clean, unoxidized, bare metal surfaces such as are found in many R&D applications have low emissivity. [...]
- Raytek’s Online Spectral Emissivity Guide — Santa Cruz CA, USA — As part of the IR Education section, the Raytek Corporation website contains some useful and well-presented information on Spectral Emissivity, one of the few instrument makers who do so. Although they just call it plain “emissivity” they then present values for three or four different wavebands, according to the table [...]
- Reflectivity of Mineral Powders — From the Website of Ocean Optics, an applications note for their Jaz Spectrometer It begins: “Reflectance spectroscopy is a versatile technique than can be used to identify and characterize a range of powdered samples including mineral powders, grains in lunar samples, mining samples, natural deposits, soils and sediment core samples. In this application note, reflectance [...]
- Noncontact multiband emissivity measurements — Proc. SPIE 5124, 240 (2003); doi:10.1117/12.517121 Conference Title: Optoelectronic and Electronic Sensors V Conference Chairs: Wlodzimierz Kalita Abstract Adam Mazikowski Gdansk Univ. of Technology (Poland) During last decade an increasing interest in passive multiband systems for temperature measurement was noted. However, recent studies showed that multiband systems are capable of producing accurate results of non-contact [...]
- Emissivity of Human Skin in the Waveband between 2 &... — From a Nature Article of the same title: By DAVID J. WATMOUGH & R. OLIVER, Department of Radiation Physics, Churchill Hospital, Oxford. Citation: Nature 219, 622 – 624 (10 August 1968); doi:10.1038 Abstract: The emissivity of human skin epsilon(lambda) in the range 2micro to 6micro has recently assumed considerable importance because of the increasing medical [...]
