    A reference entry for "radiometer" is presented. It is defined as a device used to detect and measure radiation. Radiometers consist of a glass bulb containing a partial vacuum in which four diamond-shaped paddles are mounted on a central axis. Each paddle is black on one side and silvery on the...

    A cryogenic radiometer has been revised and examined in order to improve the absolute measurement of soft X-ray intensities. The uncertainty of the temperature rise in the cavity absorber has decreased to 0.2 % through an increase in the thermal responsivity and through the suppression of the...

H.W.; Hochschild, G.; Hallgren, K.; Hartogh, P. // Atmospheric Measurement Techniques;2011, Vol. 4 Issue 9, p1979 

    The article discusses the Alpine Radiometer Intercomparison at the Schneefernerhaus (ARIS) campaign at the high altitude station at Zugspitze, Germany. The campaign was the first direct intercomparison among three ground based water vapor radiometers for middle atmospheric profiling with several...

    An important part of the Energy Balance Experiment (EBEX-2000) was the measurement of the net radiation and its components. Since the terrain, an irrigated cotton field, could not be considered homogeneous, radiation measurements were made at nine sites using a variety of radiation instruments,...

    Short-period (1–5 min) temperature and humidity soundings up to 10-km height are retrieved from ground-based 12-channel microwave radiometer profiler (MWRP) observations. In contrast to radiosondes, the radiometric retrievals provide very high temporal resolution (1 min or less) of...

    Statistical properties of the brightness temperature (T[sub B] ) measured by a low-earth-orbiting radiometer operating at 1.4 GHz are considered as a means of calibrating and validating the sensor. Mapping of ocean salinity by such an instrument requires that its calibration be extremely stable...

    We report the experimental results of a study of the sources of 1/ f type noise (hereafter referred to as 1/ f-type noise for the sake of brevity) in a total power radiometer. We find this noise to have two main sources in the radiometer: microwave amplifiers and the square-law diode detector...
