And, ironically, in the darkness, he sees the luminescence of the jungle around him.
A few of the enormous number of papers on luminescence are included in the list below.
I came to full awareness under the luminescence of the infirmary's overhead.
There is thus ample evidence that growth and respiration are properties quite distinct and separable from luminescence.
The interesting problem of luminescence will be discussed elsewhere.
Curiously enough there is also a "maximum luminescence pressure" of oxygen above which no luminescence occurs.
It was as though a door had opened into some world of luminescence.
We may then endeavor to write an equation which will represent the fundamental changes in the luminescence reaction.
luminescence is more widespread in this phylum and more characteristic of the group as a whole than any other.
Table 10 shows the relation between temperature and intensity of luminescence with pyrogallol and various oxidizers.
Fluorescence and Phosphorescence -- Prof. E. Wiedmann has made a new study of these phenomena. He proposes the general name luminescence for evolutions of light which do not depend on the temperature of the substance concerned. ["Photographic News," April 20, 1888]
luminescence lu·mi·nes·cence (lōō'mə-něs'əns)
The emission of light that does not derive energy from the temperature of the emitting body, as in fluorescence and bioluminescence.
The light so emitted.
