Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Every object emits thermal radiation energy, depending on its temperature. Therefore, the temperature of particles can be estimated by detecting their thermal radiation energy. Radiation thermometers need no thermal contact with the particles. The thermal radiation energy of a perfect emitter (i.e. blackbody) is given by Planck’s law. The radiation energy is concentrated mainly in the visible and infrared regions with wavelengths below 10 µ m.
