An instrument for measuring high degrees of heat, beyond the capacity of a mercury or gas thermometer.
[pyro- + G. metron, measure]


(pī-rŏm′ĕ-tĕr) [″ + metron, measure]
A device for measuring a very high temperature.

pyrometer (pīrom´ətur),

n an instrument for measuring temperature by the change of electrical resistance within a thermocouple. It is a millivoltometer calibrated in degrees of temperature.


instrument for measuring the intensity of heat when this is beyond the range of the mercury thermometer.

Further, the pyrometers used for calibration of pyrometry lamps and other pyrometers can have their measurement scale set directly by viewing a blackbody that has been characterized with an FR system.
Other applications involve development of automobile engines, where piston temperatures in conventional pyrometry systems often are obscured by swirling 2000 C gases in the combustion chamber.
The thermal history is the fit of the experimental data measured by pyrometry during the run (82), and it is reported as a continuous line readable on the left axes.
The measurements allowed NIST to derive a correction factor for the two-color pyrometry of these materials, which was several hundred degrees at the melting point of tungste n.
IPITEK's other divisions include IPITEK Photonic Components, with a history of over 20 years of successful design, development and manufacture of the highest quality optical components and IPITEK Sensor Products, manufacturer of precision optical pyrometry systems for a wide range of applications from semiconductor and materials processing to aerospace systems and unique optical thermocouples which are ideal for many environments where non-metal probes, immunity to electromagnetic interference, zero volatility risk and/or inertness or sterility of the probe is required.
Despite using conventional methods, such as ultrasonics [1, 2], fluorescence spectroscopy [3, 4], and infrared pyrometry [5, 6], to estimate this temperature profile, we have utilized inverse heat conduction problem.
The two options for noncontact high-temperature measurements of ceramic components are pyrometry and phosphor thermometry.
In addition, the 3000 is configured with Mattson's Ripple(TM) pyrometry, which allows for accurate and repeatable temperature measurement and control.
In addition, the 3000 is configured with STEAG's proprietary Ripple(TM)(1) pyrometry, which allows for accurate and repeatable temperature measurement and control, independent of the wafer backside emmisivities that can reduce yield.
In addition, the AST 3000 is configured with STEAG's proprietary Ripple(TM) pyrometry (Ripple is a trademark of Luxtron Corp.
