Due to the rapid growth of cryogenic technology and the accompanying rise in the use of high vacuum insulation, thermal radiation of metais at cryogenic temperatures has become an area of increasing importance. A recent review article [1] of the subject indicates the extent to which the development of experimental as well as theoretical techniques involved in this area has rapidly progressed.
