fluorescent material

material which exhibits fluorescence as the result of exposure to optical radiation

Note 1 to entry: Fluorescent materials absorb energy from optical radiation in the shorter wavelength regions of the visible spectrum and/or in the ultraviolet region and re-radiate some of this energy at longer wavelengths, producing narrow bands of emission in the visible region.

Note 2 to entry: See also "photoluminescent material", "daylight fluorescent colour".

Note 3 to entry: This entry was numbered 17-458 in CIE S 017:2011.
