Effect of Temperature on the Mechanoluminescence of Coumarin Crystals

  • B. P. Chandra and N. G. Deshmukh


The mechanoluminescence of coumarin crystals is studied. It is found that mechanoluminescence decreases sharply with temperature near the melting point and that it may be a useful probe for studying the behaviour of crystals near the melting points.
