3.2 - IR Imaging of CO2: Basics, Experiments, and Potential Industrial Applications

M. Vollmer & K.-P. Möllmann
The detection of gases by thermal imaging due to absorption, scattering, or emission of IR radiation is a rather new application in the field of infrared thermal imaging. Strong absorption/ emission features allow detection of some gases already with broad band IR cameras in the MW and LW range. The industrial importance of several gases led to the development of sensitive cameras using narrowband cold filters in front of the detector. Such cameras are commercially...
