One may gain confidence in this kind of estimate by similarly deriving the solar constant, that is, the total radiant flux onto an area of 1 m2 outside of the (attenuating) atmosphere of the earth. Starting again with Eq. 6 × 106 km, and T = 5800 K gives ≈ 1390 W m−2 , which, considering that the sun is not a true blackbody emitter, is a very good approximation for the solar constant. 7 Fractional Changes of Blackbody Radiation upon Temperature Changes In thermography, IR sensors should be able to detect minute temperature changes.

20, 30]), which states that the amount of radiation absorbed by any object is equal to the amount of radiation that is emitted by this object. 29) where ε and the so-called absorptivity α denote the fraction of radiation that is either emitted or absorbed. 4 Emissivity of reflection or diffusely scattered from rough surfaces), transmitted ( the object, or absorbed ( A ) within the object. 30b) where R and t denote the fraction of radiation that is either reflected or transmitted. Combining Eqs.

2 Planck Distribution Function for Blackbody Radiation Very precise spectral measurements of thermal radiation of cavities, that is, experimental blackbodies, existed by the end of the nineteenth century. However, it 21 22 1 Fundamentals of Infrared Thermal Imaging was not before 1900, when Max Planck introduced his famous concept of the Planck constant h, that measured spectra could be satisfactorily explained. Planck’s theory was based on thermodynamics but with the quantum nature for emission and absorption of radiation, he introduced a totally new concept not only in the theory of blackbody radiation, but in the whole world of physics.
