blackbody simulator

A source that attempts to create the characteristics of an ideal blackbody. It consists of a cavity, generally spherical, made of an opaque material and insulated from thermal effects, with a small aperture for entering radiation, which is absorbed by multiple internal reflection and absorption. Used as a reference source to supply radiation of a given intensity and spectral distribution.
