The NIST Radiation Short Course is offered every 2 years and covers the fundamentals of radiometric physics and instrumentation associated with determining temperature from observations of thermal radiation from materials. Participants will gain a good understanding of temperature measurement using thermal radiation, proper uncertainty analysis, treatment of the measurement equation, and an understanding of the calibration chain for radiance temperature.
The NIST Radiation Thermometry Short Course has been postponed until there is sufficient demand.
Start Date: Monday, October 15, 2012
End Date: Friday, October 19, 2012
Location: NIST Gaithersburg
