23 February 1985 Computerized Infrared Spectroradiometry: A Computerized Systems Approach
Author Affiliations +
Reliable and meaningful infrared spectroradiometric measurements require careful calibrations and detailed knowledge of specific techniques; often, account has to be taken for atmospheric transmittance, ambient temperature and background changes, and other effects which make measurements complicated. In addition, because of the great advance in quality and quantity of today's infrared based devices, the need has arisen for a large number of measurements in the research and development, production testing and maintenance applications. CI has used a computerized system's approach for these infrared measurement situations, by developing an IBM PC based spectroradiometer with the following capabilities: i) storage of calibration curves in the memory ii) control and display of radiometer parameters iii) signal acquisition and processing iv) calibration and display of calibrated spectra in Watt/cm2.sr. and other units v) automatic control of position and temperature of samples to be measured, and position of external optical components vi) modularity of subsystems and software packages
