Phosphorescent vinyl sheets give off a bright yellow-green glow upon absorption of light. They are great for demonstrating the principles of absorption and emission of light. The sheets have an adhesive backing and can be easily cut.
Glow-in-the-dark vinyl sheet gives off a bright yellow-green glow upon absorption of light. Simply place an object, such as your hand, on the vinyl sheet and expose it to light. Turn off the lights, and remove your hand from the sheet. The area where your hand was will remain dark while the region of the sheet that was exposed to light will phosphoresce, or glow in the dark! In a darkened room, exposure to a camera flash will provide the same glow. Great for demonstrating the principles of absorption and emission of light, particularly the process of phosphorescence. Material has an adhesive backing and can be easily cut with scissors. Each sheet is 12" x 12".
Use different color LED micro lights with the phosphorescent vinyl sheet to demonstrate the effect of wavelength on light energy and phosphorescence! For free activity instructions, please contact Flinn Scientific and request Publication No. 10978, Phosphorescence and LED Lights.
