Specifically, the spectral intensity refers to radiation in an interval dλ around a single wavelength, while the total intensity refers to combined radiation including all wavelengths. The radiative energy loses some of its strength as it propagates through a path dS—due to scattering and absorption—and gains additional strength because of in-scattering of radiation and emission in the direction Ω. 6). 6 Radiation intensity propagating through a volume element. transfer equation, or the RTE, expressed in terms of I λ .

A thorough consideration of radiation transfer would improve the design and the operation of such devices. To this end, radiative transfer calculations need to be made with rigor, which requires the use of accurate radiative properties. Radiative transfer governs the temperature distribution of the sun and the spectral and directional nature of solar emission. Understanding this spectral and directional nature of radiative energy propagation is important for solar energy utilization. Given that we need cleaner and more sustainable energy production for the growing population of Earth, implementation of efficient and optimum radiation transfer principles for solar energy storage and utilization is expected to have a significant impact on our surroundings and the environment.

The first two are the emission and absorption of electromagnetic energy by matter. The third one is the propagation of electromagnetic waves between different objects and includes the effects of scattering, which encompasses diffraction, interference, reflection, and transmission. Radiative transfer in any given physical system—from nanoscale objects up to stars—is effectively governed by the same laws and requires applications of these three principles. Yet, depending on the size of an object and the wavelength of radiation, different physical and/or mathematical approximations can be introduced to make a given problem more tractable.
