Paper Abstract

The design of a two-color pyrometer with infrared optical fiber bundles for collection of the infrared radiation is described. The pyrometer design is engineered to facilitate its use for measurement of the temperatures of small, falling samples in a microgravity materials processing experiment using a 100-meter long drop tube. Because the samples are small and move rapidly through the field-of-view of the pyrometer, the optical power budget of the detection system is severely limited. Strategies for overcoming this limitation are discussed.
