Abstract:
An infrared (IR) radiation source (20, 50) includes an envelope (22), at least a portion (26) of which is IR transmissive, and a molecular gas species (23), contained in the envelope, which gas species is thermally excited to emit IR radiation in a discrete spectrum characteristic of the species, substantially without heating the envelope.
