Abstract:

LIGHT EMITTING PAINTS COULD HAVE MANY IMPORTANT APPLICATIONS, ONE OF WHICH IS IMPROVED SAFETY IN TRANSPORTATION. THE PAINT IS BASED ON SPECIALLY PREPARED GRANUALS THAT ARE PHOTOLUMINESCENT, ACTIVATED BY INFRATED RADIATION AVAILABLE FROM HEADLIGHTS. IT APPEARS THAT THESE MATERIALS WILL CHARGEUP FROMT THE SUNLIGHT OR NATURAL DAYLIGHT AND WILL STORE VISIBLE LIGHT ENERGY FOR ONE YEAR OR MORE. THE CRITICAL ELEMENT IS THE LUMINSCENT MATERIAL ITSELF, WHICH MAY BE A COMPOUND OF FIVE OR SIX COMPONENTS. THIS PROPOSAL WILL INVESTIGATE SOME OF THE POTENTIAL SPECIAL PHOSPHORS THAT MAY BE USEFUL IN APPLICATIONS RELATED TO LIGHT EMITTING PAINTS. THE PROJECT WILL STUDY THE STORAGE CAPACITY, LENGTH OF STORAGE, DISCHARGE CYCLES, EXPECTED LIFETIME, AND OTHER RELEVANT PARAMETERS TO ASSESS THE POTENTIAL USE OF LIGHT EMITTING PAINTS.
