This book describes the theory of radiation thermometry, both at a primary level and for a variety of applications, such as in the materials processing industries and remote sensing. This book is written for those who will apply radiation thermometry in industrial practice; use radiation thermometers for scientific research; the radiation thermometry specialist in a national measurement institute; developers of radiation thermometers who are working to innovate products for instrument manufacturers, and developers of non-contact thermometry methods to address challenging thermometry problems.

The authors of each chapter were chosen from a group of international scientists who are experts in the field and specialists on the subject matter covered in the chapter. A large number of references are included at the end of each chapter as a resource for those seeking a deeper or more detailed understanding.

This book is more than a practice guide, readers will gain in-depth knowledge in:

(1) the proper selection of the type of thermometer;

(2) the best practice in using the radiation thermometers;

(3) awareness of the error sources and subsequent appropriate procedure to reduce the overall uncertainty; and

(4) understanding of the calibration chain and its current limitations.

  • Covers all fundamental aspects of the radiometric measurements
  • Discusses practical applications with details on the instrumentation, calibration, and error sources
  • Authors are from leading national labs working in R&D of temperature measurements
