Reviews

"This reviewer was impressed by the scope and depth of coverage afforded to this rapidly developing and very important class of measurement techniques. Non-contact temperature measurement has many applications, as it avoids contamination of the measured material, can handle extremely high temperatures, and can usually (but not always) be a nonintrusive measurement method. Many of the pitfalls common in application of radiation thermometry are pointed out in these volumes, and methods for avoiding the common errors in application are given. These volumes should be a part of the library of anyone using radiation thermometry in engineering applications."--International Journal of Thermophysics

"This text is written for people using radiation thermometers in industry and scientific research and designing thermometers for particular applications. It provides summaries of recent practical applications at a level accessible to the novice but with sufficient technical depth to enable him or her to use them. It contains numerous up-to-date references for those readers wanting more details on a particular topic. Along with the first volume, it would be an excellent resource for researchers and engineers designing and using radiation thermometry devices."--IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine

Benjamin Tsai Series Volume Editor

Benjamin K. Tsai graduated from Brigham Young University with a BSME degree in 1987. Next, he obtained a MSME degree in 1990 at Purdue University by completing his thesis on “Dual-wavelength Radiation Thermometry: Emissivity Compensation Algorithms.” In 1993 he finished a PhD degree at Purdue University with a dissertation entitled, “Macroscopic Spread Function Analysis for Subsurface Scattering in Semitransparent Materials.” Since that time, he has worked in the Sensor Science Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. His interests and projects have included development of a new irradiance scale, developing the ambient background infrared calibration laboratory, setting up high heat flux calibrations, making accurate temperature measurements in rapid thermal processing, modeling diffraction effects, performing low-temperature radiance temperature and spectrophotometric calibrations, evaluating skin reflectance, understanding ageing effects in ceramics, setting up a synchrotron beamline, and improving spectrophotometry in the SWIR using extend InGaAs detectors.
