Seeing in a Different Light--Using an Infrared Camera to Teach Heat Transfer and Optical Phenomena
Wong, Choun Pei; Subramaniam, R.
Physics Education, v53 n3 Article 035007 May 2018
The infrared camera is a useful tool in physics education to 'see' in the infrared. In this paper, we describe four simple experiments that focus on phenomena related to heat transfer and optics that are encountered at undergraduate physics level using an infrared camera, and discuss the strengths and limitations of this tool for such purposes.
