Mechanism of Far Infrared Emission from Mineral Tourmaline Fine Powders
The little disturbance theory in quantum mechanics was used to research the frequency and the high emissivity of far infrared emission from natural black tourmaline on basis of the electric dipole model. Comparing the theoritical and the experimental value of the frequency we found that they are in match case. So we testified that the tourmaline partical is really composed of lots of crystal electric dipole. At the same time we explained the curves of infrared absorption analysis of natural black tourmalines at room temperature are simillar despite of their diversification in chemistry component and producing area, and they have high infrared emissivity from the theory point of view. Finally we pointed out the condition under which the high infrared emissivity of tourmaline can be obtained theoritically.
