Paper Abstract

Misunderstandings are described concerning blackbodies, simulators, cavities and apertures. Blackbodies are identified as ideal (not real) items, while the expression blackbody simulator is recommended for real (not ideal) approximations to blackbodies. Surface and volume considerations for blackbodies and blackbody simulators are addressed. Blackbody and blackbody simulator history are traced. The important roles of blackbody simulator cavities and blackbody simulator apertures are emphasized.
