The instrumentation for radiation thermometry and emissivity measurement under vacuum and in a liquid nitrogen cooled environment, the Reduced Background Calibration Facility (RBCF), was recently brought into full operation at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB). Here we report in detail on its performance for spectral radiance, radiance temperature and emissivity measurements.
