Technical Specification
Heat radiation is one of the three basic forms of heat transfer. In radiation the heat transfer takes place via electromagnetic waves. Unlike heat conduction and convection, heat radiation can also propagate in a vacuum. Heat radiation is not bound to a material. Basic experiments for targeted teaching on the topic of heat transfer by radiation. At the heart of the experimental unit is a metallic sample heated by a concentrated light beam. The light beam is generated by a continuously adjustable halogen lamp and a parabolic reflector. The reflector concentrates the radiation to a focal point. A sample is placed on a thermocouple located at the focal point. The thermal radiation emitted by the sample is measured by a thermopile. In order to be able to measure the radiation at different distances, the thermopile is mounted on a moveable carriage. Samples with different surfaces are available to be selected. Perfectly matched components ensure rapid heating and trouble-free measurements. The instrumentation is well protected in the housing. The software consists for system operation and for data acquisition.
