Paper Abstract

The problem of deducing the temperature profile of a spatially incoherent primary source from measurements of its generalized radiance is addressed. A reconstruction algorithm is presented that allows the spatial intensity profile of the source to be reconstructed from the generalized radiance specified over plane surfaces tangent to a sphere completely surrounding the source. The temperature profile is then determined from the intensity profile via well known formulae relating the temperature profile of an incoherent radiator to its intensity profile'. The entire development is shown to be a generalized approach to ray emission tomography 2 and reduces to the latter in the limit of very short wavelengths.
