Emissivity & other infrared-optical properties
- Influence of KMnO4 Concentration on Infrared Emissivity o... — On TC4 Alloys by Micro-Arc Oxidation (Materials EISSN 1996-1944) Abstract: Ceramic coatings with high emissivity were fabricated on TC4 alloys by micro-arc oxidation technique (MAO) in mixed silicate and phosphate electrolytes with varying KMnO4 addition. The microstructure, phase and chemical composition were characterized by scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy [...]
- Retrievals of the Far Infrared surface emissivity over th... — Research Article TITLE: “Retrievals of the Far Infrared surface emissivity over the Greenland Plateau using the Tropospheric Airborne Fourier Transform Spectrometer (TAFTS).” (See Author List below) ABSTRACT (Format Edited for easier online viewing) The Tropospheric Airborne Fourier Transform Spectrometer (TAFTS) measured near surface upwelling and downwelling radiances within the far infrared (FIR) over Greenland during [...]
- 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 [...]
