Paper Abstract

Polarization pyrometry is discussed and it is shown that under certain conditions this thermometric technique does not rely on a knowledge of the emissivity of the surface whose temperature is to be measured. An instrument has been designed which operates over a range from 200 - 500 °C, and some preliminary results are presented for tests on stainless steel, aluminium and copper surfaces.
