Luminescence

 

Cool light emitted by sources as a result of the movement of electrons from more energetic states to less energetic states. There are many types of luminescence. Chemiluminescence is produced by certain chemical reactions. Electroluminescence is produced by electric discharges, which may appear when silk or fur is stroked or when adhesive surfaces are separated. Triboluminescence is produced by rubbing or crushing crystals.
