Clean, unoxidized, bare metal surfaces have such low emissivity that they are difficult to measure with a thermal imaging camera. In order to get good measurements, the emissivity of these surfaces needs to be increased. This application note describes how to use a variety of low-cost materials to increase target emissivity in many industrial R&D and electrical applications.
