Paper Abstract

It is necessary to obtain a surface radiation temperature that does not include reflection energy, because the influence of reflection energy on measured images of a surface radiation temperature is comparatively large on a metal surface. In general, there are two ways to eliminate reflection energy and to specify a true temperature. One typical method is the analytical method which obtains a true surface temperature after measuring a true emissivity using IR radiometer. Another is based on the bicolored method applying pseudo gray-body approximation, in which a true surface temperature can be acquired after eliminating emissivity on a surface with the aid of radiation energy possessing various detection wavelengths. The surface temperature measurement using bicolored radiometer combined with pseudo gray-body approximation has not been discussed yet. Therefore, in the present study, we will propose and investigate the bicolored temperature measurement based on a power law description of energy for various detection wavelengths. And then its applicability and accuracy on temperature measurement will also be estimated as follows.
