Description

Here is the most comprehensive treatment available on practical temperature measurement methods using radiation thermometry. All aspects of measurement technology are covered: basic principles, types of radiation thermometers, calibration methods, and applications. Covers the latest instruments and discusses the central problem of radiation thermometry--how to infer the true temperature from the indicated temperature. Generously illustrated.
