    Abstract. As an introduction to the historical part of this book, it is worth recalling the origin of the terms fluorescence, phosphorescence, luminescence When and how these phenomena were discovered are of course the basic questions [1], but the first step of a historical research is the understanding of the etymology of a word invented for designating a phenomenon Cited by: 2. In contrast to the traditional view that the small organic molecules emit fluorescence, more and more experiments manifest their special luminescence types, such as the thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) and room-temperature phosphorescence. Why the similar organic molecules exhibit different luminescence types is focused on in this work on the basis of Cited by: 5.

      The role of B 2 O 3 addition on the long phosphorescence of SrAl 2 O 4:Eu 2+, Dy 3+ has been investigated. B 2 O 3 is just not an inert high temperature solvent (flux) to accelerate grain growth, according to SEM results. B 2 O 3 has a substitutional effect, even at low concentrations, by way of incorporation of BO 4 in the corner-shared AlO 4 framework of the Cited by: Fluorescence defines the emission of light by a mineral such as a diamond while exposed under certain types of light, such as ultraviolet (UV) light. Phosphorescence on the other hand defines the emission of light by a material after exposure to light- like the “glow in the dark” stars that you may have glued to your ceiling as a child.

    Phosphate Mineral. Phosphate minerals are natural sources of thorium, uranium, and uncommon metals and are also used in the radiochemical methods of separation of fissile materials from irradiated nuclear fuel and processes of “excess” weapon plutonium conversion into the mixed oxide fuel (MOX) for the nuclear reactors of new generation.

Specimen under standard Illumination: Phosphorescence is a phenomenon exhibited in several fluorescent minerals where the mineral continues to glow even after the UV light source has been removed.

The glow slowly fades, and after several seconds (or minutes in a few cases) is no longer visible to the eye. Complete List of luminescent minerals referenced in the database. There are minerals and varieties reported in this list (IMA recognized minerals in Capitals and varieties or discredited names in normal letters), with pictures and with spectra.

Phosphorescence The ability of some fluorescent minerals to keep on glowing for several seconds after the fluorescent lamp has been removed.

The effect may cause the mineral to visibly glow for only several seconds, but the phosphorescent effect lasts much longer beyond what the human eye can perceive.

PHOSPHORESCENCE. Many minerals that fluoresce will at times also phosphoresce. Phosphorescence is the ability of a mineral to glow after the initial activating ultraviolet light is removed.

The electrons in the mineral have essentially stored the energy of the initial activating light and then re-emit the phosphorescent light on a delayed basis. Besides a few natural minerals, phosphorescence is produced by chemical compounds. Probably the best-known of these is zinc sulfide, which has been used in products since the s.

Zinc sulfide usually emits a green phosphorescence, although phosphors may be added to change the color of light. Title. Phosphorescence, or, The emission of light by minerals, plants, and animals. Title Variants: Alternative: Emission of light by minerals, plants, and animals.

Reeve edition, Microform. Triboluminescence describes minerals that glow when they are crushed, scratched or even rubbed. These minerals contain elements or other agents that emit light when even mechanical energy is imparted to them. Minerals that have been known to show this unusual property are: calcite, fluorite, lepidolite, sphalerite and some Size: KB.

The fluorescent minerals described in Part A of this chapter, “Fluorescent Minerals of the United States,” can also be considered to be a useful guide beyond the borders of the United States.

Nature tends to repeat itself, and to a great extent, the fluorescent minerals described earlier can be expected to be found in other mineral localities of the : Manuel Robbins.

"The original sketch of this work appeared for the first time in the Journal de médecin et de pharmacologie,' of Brussells, ": cf. National Union cataloguePages: Phosphorescence is a type of photoluminescence related to fluorescence.

Unlike fluorescence, a phosphorescent material does not immediately re-emit the radiation it absorbs. The slower time scales of the re-emission are associated with "forbidden" energy state transitions in quantum mechanics. As these transitions occur very slowly in certain materials, absorbed radiation is re.
