Abstract

The transient calorimetric technique is used to measure the temperature dependence of the total hemispherical emissivity of polished copper. Our experimental results do not agree with the emissivity predicted by Parker and Abbott. With no adjustable parameters good agreement is obtained between experimental results and a model in which electron-phonon and electron-surface scattering are included in the Drude approximation.
