Kirchhoff's law of thermal radiation, or Kirchhoff's law for short,
is a general statement equating emission and absorption in heated
objects, proposed by Gustav Kirchhoff in 1859, following from
general considerations of thermodynamic equilibrium and detailed
balance. An object at some non-zero temperature radiates
electromagnetic energy. If it is a perfect black body, absorbing
all light that strikes it, it radiates energy according to the
black-body radiation formula. More generally, it is a "grey body"
that radiates with some emissivity multiplied by the black-body
