Abstract
Infrared radiation thermometry has in the past decade seen remarkable success in measuring human body temperature, as evidenced by the many variations on the Infrared Ear Thermometer. There are other devices and additional motivation to speed detection and reduce uncertainty in measurement of elevated temperature in humans, particularly on a mass basis. All the devices employing the various techniques must meet very high standards for equipment performance and calibration stability to be successful. This paper presents an overview of the present status of the various measurements and standards.
