Fluorescence

Flu`o`res´cence
n.1.(Chemistry, Optics) A luminescence emitted by certain substances due to the absorption of radiation at one wavelength, and the almost instantaneous re-emission of radiation at another, usually longer wavelength. The re-radiation stops almost as soon as the incident radiation is halted, thus distinguishing this phenomenon from phosphorescence, in which re-radiation of light may continue for some time after the incident radiation is halted.
Noun1.fluorescence - light emitted during absorption of radiation of some other (invisible) wavelength
