Wikipedia has an entry for emissivity that is very brief and limited as of November 2008. Perhaps some visitors will improve it.
Will check periodically and let you know.
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 […]
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 […]
A brief explanation of the topic of emissivity, that gets into the concept of spectral emissivity… a little. It deals with the total emissivity used in radiant heat transfer, but the basic concepts apply at any wavelength. Visit http://www.fuji-piezo.com/emissivi.htm online to read their explanation.
