Paper Abstract

Three types of cavity emissivities are described based on wavelength, two types based on temperature, and five types based on geometry. Nonisothermal cavities are shown to be best represented by a two-temperature emissivity while most other items, including isothermal cavities, are customarily represented by a one-temperature emissivity. Radiance based emissivity and local hemispherical emissivity are recommended for making cavity evaluations and comparisons, while the hemispherical emissivity of the cavity aperture and a cavity emissivity that is based on detector considerations are shown to be faulty.
