Due to the high dependence of our thermal emission characteristics on the wavelength of the heat source, only certain wavelength ranges are effective for thermal measurements. The following figures reveal the range of thermal transmission of standard thermal lenses and window substances for infrared thermometers. The blue-colored curve shows the general rule for all materials and shows the average value for an interval of temperature from zero (black) to infinity (green) which 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 coefficient against the thermal gradient. This ratio is calculated as a function of the temperature difference along the viewing angle for given viewing angles and cte of a window or lens. The slope of this curve is proportional to the bending angle of an entire system, which is the result when the angle of incidence change from linear to spherical. The focal length of a system is also an important factor in the slope. This can be thought of as a function the focal length divided by the length of the curve (i.e. the interval between shots).
For a particular temperature range and a certain focal length of a window or lens assembly, the inside temperature of the system will always fall within the prescribed range in the perfect order called a “curved surface.” The thermal conductance curve of a glass bead inside a glass vial could be plotted in relation to the focal length and the temperature difference between the bottom of the vial and its surface and the angle of incidence of a particular window. If the aperture is fixed for all shots then the area between the system’s surface temperature and the curve of variation will remain constant. If the aperture is variable and the curve is not fixed, then it could be curved because of the variations in the temperature of the glass used to make the bead as well as the temperature of the ambient air that is on the inside of the vial’s surface, and the focal length and time of shooting. An example of a curved surface can be seen in the signature left by the photographer of the flower.
A window and lens should be mounted in a way that their focal points and lines of sight are correctly aligned. If the surface temperature of an object is too cold for the lens, then the outside temperature of the frame and its interior temperature will be too high. The frame will not have to be adjusted in order to compensate for internal temperature fluctuations or cooling effects. If there are no temperature variations from outside, the frame’s inside temperature will be the same for the given focal length. If the system is located in an area with restricted or blocked views of surrounding scenery or buildings it could be necessary to control internal temperatures.
The first mechanical interlocking system that was used to attach camera lenses were made out of plastic. This innovation was later adopted to work with pinhole glasses. This type of lens assembly comes with a drawback that the mechanical joints between the lens and frame might crack or indent. In the event of this happening, it will be required for the entire assembly to be replaced within the shortest amount of time. Due to this the system has been replaced by more robust designs.
Pinhole glasses lenses are typically constructed using a frame of metal and a thin, plastic or glass lid. At a minimum, these lense designs should include a hermetically sealed lens construction. A hermetically sealed lens construction contains a sealed surface along the top and bottom of the lens assembly. The top layer could be a part of an electronic seal similar to the one previously mentioned. It could also contain a different substance, like an adhesive, lip, or a layer of plastic film.
A lens surface that is an adhesive and is bonded to the base is another embodiment of this type lens and window assembly. This type of system typically consists of a window casing and several lens compartments. The windows could also include other types of devices, like light emitters or thermometers. This kind of system may include a thermostat or light emitter which controls the temperature of the room. In this case the system would comprise of compartments that could house the temperature control together with a variety of other devices, including an alarm thermostat or clock.
