Because of the dependence of our thermal emission characteristics on the wavelength of the thermal due to the dependence of our thermal emission behavior on the wavelength, only a few wavelengths are suitable for thermal measurements. The following diagrams illustrate the ranges of thermal transmission of common window and thermal lenses for infrared thermometers. The blue-colored curve reflects the general rule for all materials. It is the average value across a temperature range of zero (black) to infinity (green) and is the cold-pressure limit, (CPL).
The cold-pressure limit, which is used for lenses and windows is the highest recorded value of a material’s damping rate against the thermal gradient. This ratio is calculated as a function the temperature variation along a viewing angle for a given viewing angles and cte of a lens or window. The bending moment of a system is the change in angle of incidence from linear or spherical. This makes the slope proportional to the curve. The focal length of the system is also a factor in the slope. This can be thought of as a function the focal length divided by the period of the curve (i.e. the time between shots).
The inside temperature of the system will always be within the prescribed curve for the given temperature and the focal length of a window assembly or lens. This is also referred to as a “curved top”. The thermal conductance curve of a glass beads within a glass vial can be plotted in relation to the focal length and the temperature difference between the bottom and the surface of the vial and the angle of incidence of a particular window. If the aperture is fixed for all shots, then the distance between the temperature of the inside surface of the system and the curve of variation for the particular window assembly should always remain constant. If the aperture is variable, then the curve may be curving as a result of the variations in the temperature of the glass used in the making of the bead, the temperature of the ambient atmospheric air on the inside surface of the vial, and the focal length and duration of shooting. An example of a curved surface can be seen in the signature of the photographer of the flower.
A lens and window must be mounted in a way that their focal points and lines of sight are correctly aligned. If the surface temperature of a system is too cold for the lens, then the outside temperature of the frame and the interior temperature will be too high. The frame will not need to be adjusted to account for internal temperature fluctuations or cooling effects. The internal temperature of the system will be appropriate for a specific focal length without the need for any other adjustments, as long as there is no external cause of temperature variations affects the system. However, if the camera is located in a place with an obstruction or restricted view of the surrounding scenery or building and the surrounding area, then internal temperatures might need to be controlled.
The first mechanical interlocking system used to attach lenses to cameras were made of plastic or other materials that would change shape or bend in response to changes in mounting pressure. This innovation was later adapted for use with pinhole glasses. The issue with this kind of lens assembly is that the mechanical joints between the frame and the lens may indent or break. In the event of this happening, it will be essential for the entire system to be replaced within a short time. This is the reason this system is being replaced with more durable models.
Pinhole glasses lenses are generally constructed using a frame of metal and a thin, plastic or glass lid. The lense designs should at a minimum, have a hermetically-sealed construction. A hermetically sealed lens construction has a sealed surface on the bottom and at the top. The top layer could be a part of a mechanical seal similar to the one previously mentioned. It could also be a source of adhesive, lip, or layer of plastic film.
Another variant of lens and window assembly is to have the lens surface, which is an adhesive that adheres to the base of the window assembly. This type of system is typically comprised of a window casing and a series of lens compartments. Other types of devices could be included in the windows, like light emitters and thermometers. This kind of system could also include the thermostat or light emitter that controls the temperature in the room. A number of compartments could be used to house the temperature controller and a range of other devices, such as an alarm clock, thermostat, or other devices.
