Paper Abstract

We review theoretical considerations that give rise to the blackbody radiation inside a cavity with completely absorbing walls at a specific temperature. We examine the applicability of this model to the experimentally observed properties of radiation sources. We assess relevance of emissivity and its far-reaching implications. We examine its changing nature and measurement challenges
