Thermal imaging of objects with unknown emissivities

Jun Yamada, Yasuo Kurosaki

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This study presents a new thermal imaging system using thermography and the principle of two-color thermometry to determine the temperatures of multiple objects having unknown emissivity data. System demonstration was successful when applied to two objects having different temperatures and unknown emissivities, since more suitable thermal images were obtained than those using a conventional thermograph.
