The measurement of temperature by radiometry comes directly from the application of Planck’s law. The interpretation of the results however requires knowing exactly: (1) the relationship between the electrical signal delivered at the output of the radiometer and the thermal radiation of the observed objects; (2) the correspondence between the signal output and a temperature scale.
