Low-Cost Synthetic Material Produces White Light That Imitates Sunlight

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Persistent luminescence materials are used in everyday glow-in-the-dark applications and show high potential for medical imaging, night-vision surveillance and enhancement of solar cells. The materials that make these applications possible contain rare earths and heavy metals that are expensive. Researchers at the University of Turku in Finland have developed a low-cost synthetic material that emits luminescence closer to sunlight than that of the currently used lanthanides. The hackmanite developed by researchers at the University of Turku. Courtesy of University of Turku. The...Read full article
