Theoretical Description of Blackbody Models
In laboratory and industrial practice, a source of radiation is often required which conforms very closely to a blackbody and can be controlled in temperature. Such blackbody models, whose spectral energy distribution follows the Planck law quite accurately, are widely applied as reference sources for radiometers and spectroradiometers, as standard sources for calibrating special infrared equipment of various types, and for determining the basic parameters of radiation detectors.
