Title: High-temperature carbon-furnace thermometer

Abstract

A thermometer for monitoring temperatures between 1500 and 2600/sup 0/K in industrial carbon furnaces is described. The instrument uses a calibrated broadband radiation sensor and incorporates features to minimize optical path attenuations which limit temperature measurement accuracy in practice. Errors can be substantially reduced to near instrument calibration uncertainty (+-1%) with an enclosed windowless optical path to a blackbody target.
