Regarding TC all of you repeat the story about the emissivity.... etc...... but that was only a fantasy and a false information diffused only by TC, and also the others critics in what you call his paper were ridiculous.
And BTW who was supervising TC ? You say that even an Angel could do errors why not TC ?
You seem to take his words like a dogma, or an absolute truth."
Well, I tested it. I once again suggest everyone test it.
TC was right within a very small margin of error.
Heat up an alumina tube to glowing, use the Lugano Protocol, and get a "COP" of around 3 to 4.
Then stick a thermocouple on the tube, correct the IR camera or even IR "gun" emissivity function to the appropriate value, which very near 0.95, and voila, the IR camera temperature plummets, matches the thermocouple, and a COP of 1.0 (or very close to that) is the result when the math is done.
Seriously, the replicator crowd should have made dozens of fake 3 to 4 COP devices using the Lugano Protocol and alumina tubes (even bathroom tiles) by now. No fuel needed! No special recipe, except the Lugano Protocol IR total and spectral emissivity conflation treatment.
