Since the ability of a body to radiate thermal energy is a function of its emittance, this property must be accurately evaluated. A theoretical approach to emittance evaluation is formidable because of the inability to classify materials according to crystalline or polymeric structure. Thus, experimental determinations are nearly always used.
