Paper Abstract

Infrared fiber optic pyrometry has become a practical reality using improved strength fluoride glass fibers. The addition of a plastic coating and rugged cabling allows the fibers to be used in the field. A detailed theoretical model of the infrared fiber optic pyrometer (non-contact or radiative thermometer) has been derived and compared with data produced by a prototype fluoride glass fiber radiative thermometer. Excellent agreement was obtained between theory and experiment over a temperature range of 30 to 700° C.
