- n. Luminescence electrically excited, as by the discharge in a vacuum tube. See luminescence.
Polymers can also be made to light up, but by another principle, namely electroluminescence, which is used in photodiodes.
Light-emitting diodes LEDs represent various types of semiconductor devices that produce incoherent narrow-spectrum light fascicles when powered with a steady-state voltage electrical source, producing the effect known as electroluminescence.
In electroluminescence, light is emitted from a thin layer of the polymer when excited by an electrical field.
A man who gets turned on by cold light technology and electroluminescence.
They shot downward, through the roiling waves of electroluminescence, and into the protecting grooves of the disk.
Cue up a kaleidoscope of House Industries techniques, substrates, disciplines and muscle memory compressed into high-definition pixels and actively matrixed through modulated electroluminescence with an audio lesson from
"Compared with other types of flat panel displays such as LCDs and electroluminescence displays, FED is advantageous in its brightness and size (a huge size is possible)."
Prof. Bradley is one of the 1989 co-inventors of conjugated polymer of electroluminescence.
It is loaded with a 2. 07-megapixel CMOS camera, a 2. 7-inch TFT LCD main display, and a 0. 9-inch white organic electroluminescence sub-display.
A paper reporting this research titled, "Site isolation of emitters within cross-linked polymer nanoparticles for white electroluminescence," appears in the journal Nano Letters.
