Optical Methods of Temperature Determination

  • Mikaél’ A. Bramson
Part of the Optical Physics and Engineering book series (OPEG)


The thermal radiation of heated bodies is widely used to study the properties and temperature of radiating substances. If a substance is in the gaseous state the spectrum of its thermal radiation will contain individual lines or bands. The wavelengths corresponding to these lines and the line intensities will depend on the composition, temperature, and other properties of the gas.
