(engineering)
An instrument that focuses and detects the infrared radiation emitted by an object in order to determine its temperature.

Infrared thermometer

A digital thermometer capable of measuring the temperature of a surface from a distance ranging from a few inches to a few feet. Most handheld infrared thermometers include a laser to help aim the device; the laser plays no role in temperature measurement. Used as an inexpensive substitute for a thermal imaging camera, an infrared thermometer can detect hot or cold spots on walls, ceilings, and duct systems.

Fortuna and colleagues (2010) reported ambient temperature did not influence device accuracy when comparing rectal to mid-forehead non-contact infrared thermometry. Sim, Leow, Hao, and Yeo (2016) reported axillary and TAT methods were comparable in 169 neonates nursed in ambient room temperature, with wider thresholds and poor clinical agreeability in the presence of phototherapy, incubator, and radiant warming interventions.

This led to a second important application of infrared thermometry: the development of whole-field, once-a-day canopy temperature maps that could be related to a water stress index, leaf water potential, soil profile water content, potential yield, and the detection of out-of-control management zones that required special attention.

(1981a) suggested a "crop water stress index" (CWSI) derived from the increase in average canopy temperature in relation to that of a well-watered reference plot and evaluated by infrared thermometry. The CWSI was linearly related to available soil water for a number of crops (Jackson et al., 1981; Nielsen and Anderson, 1989) and, thus, it could be useful for irrigation scheduling (for a review, see Gardner et al., 1992).
