Contactless temperature measurement methods have significant advantages over contact thermometry. Quick, space-resolved measurements provide valuable information in many technical and medical areas, for example in the characterisation of thin layers or thermal side effects of a laser-assisted therapy method.
The ILM has had at its disposal for quite some time now the fastest commercially available IR camera system (model: CMT 256 HS, manufacturer: Thermosensorik) which it uses to spatially and temporally register temperature differences of a few millikelvin (∆T=10mK) with a very high resolution.
The ILM also possesses a black emitter and a certified, calibrated pyrometer for the calibration of the IR camera and other infrared detectors.
Technical details (black emitter): Temperature range: 35°C - 550°C Emissivity: >0.995 Stability (over 30 min): <0.2°C Technical details: Measurement range: -50°C - 1000°C Spect. sensitivity: l=8 -14μm Measurement area: Ø=3.0mm
We have a great deal of experience in the regular and successful use of these systems for the contactless determination of temperature on the surface of technical and biological materials. In addition, the radiometric measurement method enables the verification of numerical simulation models.
