Abstract:

A device for measuring energy absorptance of a sample material is disclosed. A temperature controlled enclosure, in which a sample is suspended, is placed in an evacuated container. Calibration is accomplished by means of a known power dissipation in the sample. The sample material is irradiated by an energy beam of known power and a temperature rise is compared to the calibration temperature rise. Means for scanning the sample is also provided. Author
