Luminescence

Luminescence isn’t just a beautiful phenomenon—it has widespread applications in science and everyday life. By measuring the light a luminescent object produces, one can determine the composition of the object and even the concentrations of its components. Fluorescent lamps that use UV light to create white light are gaining momentum throughout the world because they are more energy-efficient than obsolete incandescent light bulbs.
