electrical substitution radiometer

A radiometer for which the output of the thermal detector is measured as the detector is alternately exposed to a radiant energy source and then to a known internal electrical heating.

Radiant heating per unit area of an entrance aperture is then equated to the electrical energy used to equivalently heat the detector.
