7 October 2014 Evaluating performances of vacuum dedicated blackbodies
Author Affiliations +
Vacuum blackbodies have to combine performance of traditional infrared reference sources with specific features in order to operate in vacuum chamber. As their usual applications are calibration and tests of IR sensors to be loaded on satellites, earth or space radiation simulation and test of IR sensors for scientific applications, their usual features are emission over an ultra extended temperature range, knowledge of the radiated temperature with a high accuracy, extremely high uniformity of the emissive surface and extremely high emissivity. HGH developed tools to demonstrate such performances since they surpass the accuracy of usual tools.
