This exciting book describes the latest technology in non-invasive thermometry that measures temperature distribution, with discussions focusing on image-based techniques. This is the first book devoted entirely to this topic. An international team of experts detail all important techniques for possible non-invasive thermometry. Descriptions of each technique explain in depth the principles of measurement, the measurement system, obtained temperature image, and the future prospects for the method.
