“The emissivity of metals often changes with wavelength. This means it is very difficult to determine what emissivity should be entered in passive, traditional pyrometers (all those that do not determine the emissivity during measurement). An example or two will show the difficulty.”
The graphs shown are from the “Thermophysical Properties of Matter ” vol 7; Thermal Radiative Properties, Ed By Y.S. Touloukian and D.P Dewitt, IFI-Plenum, New York 1970.
The original graphs in that volume were accompanied by the data represented by each curve, the literature citation for each and a description of the measurement and sample details represented by each curve.
Welcome to SpectralEmissivity.com.
This site is for those who want or need to know more about spectral emissivity, what it is, how it is measured, reported and applies, or is applied to, Radiation Thermometry, including the two dimensional variation known popularly as Quantitative Thermal Imaging, and Spectral Radiometry.
We are under construction but check back soon to see what’s happening.
The concept of this site is two-fold.
First, the staff at Temperatures.com, the originators of the site, are organizing it and adding as much information as we can reasonably find.
Second, this is a community website. User inputs are encouraged and everything that goes on here is available to the public at large on the Web free of charge.
If you have or find an interesting resource that is not already here; share it in turn!
You can add a comment below at any time. We reject spam inputs the best we can, too.
We can use all the help we can get and you will get credit for everything you do.
One thing to note, the only advertising on this site will be text-only to help defray Temperature.com’s cost of operating it and we expect it to be minimal, if any, since our costs are actually quite low.
Thanks for visiting and do come back!
