Take-home laboratory for a course in radiometry
Author(s): James M. Palmer

Paper Abstract

A set of take-home experiments associated with a junior-level course entitled Radiometry, Sources and Detectors has been developed. The students are furnished with a small, inexpensive radiometer and a kit of accessories which allow a wide variety of self-conducted experiments to be performed. A laboratory manual has also been developed to guide the student through a series of eleven experiments. The student must prove radiometric concepts in several cases, and must develop the details of the experiment. This paper describes the concept, the apparatus and the experiments, and reports on the results.
