In this work, a novel experimental method for measurement of radiation emitted by supercritical carbon dioxide (s-CO 2 ) at high pressure and high temperature is presented. Due to high pressure conditions, use of conventional spectroscopic methods to measure radiative properties of s-CO 2 is challenging. In the present method, supercritical conditions are created in a shock tube by using carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) as the driven gas. The radiative emission by s-CO 2 is measured using a platinum based thin film sensor. The total emissivity for s-CO 2 is estimated and the value compares favourably with that predicted theoretically using a standard method available in literature. It is estimated that the total emissivity value of supercritical conditions is nearly 0.2 for the conditions studied, implying that s-CO 2 acts as a participating medium for radiation heat transfer. The outcome of this study will have significant impact on the design of heat transfer equipment such as solar thermal receivers and heat exchangers typically used in s-CO 2 based closed Brayton cycle, for which participating medium radiation heat transfer has been neglected traditionally. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd
