Blackbody Radiation Spectrum Model 

written by Fu-Kwun Hwang
edited by Loo Kang Wee and Wolfgang Christian

The Blackbody Radiation Spectrum model shows six fixed-temperature curves between Tmin and Tmax and a red variable-temperature curve that can be adjusted using a slider. The wavelength is measured in nm (nanometer) and the intensity is measured in W.e-5 / (m2.nm). Users can adjust Tmin and Tmax to change the temperature range that is displayed.

The Blackbody Radiation Spectrum was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double click the ejs_ntnu_BlackbodyRadiationSpectrum.jar file to run the program if Java is installed.
