Electroluminescence

Electroluminescence (EL) is an optical phenomenon and electrical phenomenon in which a material emits light in response to the passage of an electric current or to a strong electric field. This is distinct from black body light emission resulting from heat (incandescence), from a chemical reaction (chemiluminescence), sound (sonoluminescence), or ...

electroluminescence

emission of optical radiation in excess of that radiation due to normal thermal emission resulting from the application of electrical energy NOTE - One example is the photon emission resulting from electron-hole recombination in a PN junction such as in a light emitting diode.
