Boris Wilthan


Boris Wilthan is currently working on the design, implementation and enhancement of data capture procedures for a database on thermophysical properties of metals and alloys. (

His experimental expertise includes:

  • characterization of high temperature carbon eutectic fixpoints by radiometric methods
  • determination of high temperature thermophysical properties of metals with a microsecond pulse-heating method and differential scanning calorimetry
  • measurement of optical properties (reflectance and emittance) in the visible, near, and mid IR with integrating spheres, FTIR radiance comparison methods, and microsecond laser polarimetry
  • calibration and characterization of filters, detectors, paints,  and coatings in the IR
