In this work, we present normal spectral emissivity data of solid and liquid molybdenum at a wavelength of 684.5 nm. The presented results are novel measurements on molybdenum, a material, which was already measured 15 years ago by our group. The present results indicate a lower emissivity in the liquid phase. The novel measurements were done within the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) project 17IND11 Hi-TRACE. The optimized measuring system is an ohmic pulse-heating apparatus combined with microsecond Division of Amplitude polarimetry.
