Thermal Detection And Infrared Cameras

Recommended Posts

Thermal detection is used in infrared cameras to detect objects not visible in the dark.

For an object to be detected by an infrared camera, its surface has to have good absorbance of infrared or good reflectivity? Also, how does emmisivity relate to absorbance and reflectivity?
