Abstract

Experiments performed here corroborate the report of Drummond and Webster that fused quartz can be activated to phosphorescence by being irradiated with ultra violet light from a quartz mercury vapor lamp. It is also found that the fused quartz is thermoluminescent. The radiations emitted from the phosphorescent and thermoluminescent quartz appear to be confined largely, if not completely, to the visible region. These radiations, however, at ordinary room temperatures, are of such low intensity as to be invisible to the eye.
