Chapter 2: Theoretical Development
In either case, the characteristic spectrum of the radiation depends on the object and its surroundings' absolute temperatures. The topic of this volume, radiation thermometry, or more generally, non-contact temperature measurement, involves taking advantage of this radiation dependence on temperature to measure the temperature of objects and masses without the need for direct contact.
Topics covered include:
1. Radiation Basics
2. Blackbody Concepts
3. From Blackbodies to Real Surfaces
Other chapters of Transactions will systematically cover other aspects of temperature, humidity, pressure, strain, flow, level, pH, and conductivity instrumentation as well as other measurement, data acquisition and control topics.
