Energy storage effect and retrieval in manganese doped zinc silicate

View publication

Abstract

It is shown that a significant amount of energy can be stored at room temperature for long periods in the manganese activated zinc silicates upon excitation by short wavelength UV photons (>3.65eV), and X-ray radiation. The stored energy can be stimulated by long wavelength photons (infrared and red) resulting in visible green emission. This effect has potential application in high energy radiation detection and imaging. © 1980.
