- ‘Some of the triboluminescent materials appear to partially decompose in an hourglass shape that suggests chemical reaction occurs selectively along only some crystal axes.’
- ‘The triboluminescent spectrum is basically similar to that of photoluminescence, which correlates with the disorders of F atoms.’
- ‘Some scientists believe that crystal structure and impurities are central to whether a material becomes triboluminescent.’
