based spectroscopy specialist Tribogenics has signed Singapore-based Horiba Scientific to distribute the company's new line of Watson hand-held XRF metal analysers throughout Southeast Asia, the company said.
My approach for The Chairs draws on the idea of Triboluminescence
, a visible event that occurs when a material is physically altered and its chemical bonds are broken, releasing a burst of light.

phenomenon initially occurred at 50N and 2m/s.
is the phenomenon that produces light by pressure, friction or mechanical shock.
Then the samples were heated to 50[degrees]C for 1 h to remove the contribution of triboluminescence
, if any, which is generated during powdering of the sample.
Some of these chapters handle relevant scientific concerns: the nature and origins of fluorescence, tenebrescence, triboluminescence
and thermoluminescence; trace-element activators; and commonly fluorescent species, as presented in paragraph-length accounts.
This effect seems to be similar to mechanically induced thermoluminescence or triboluminescence
This phenomenon has a name: triboluminescence
finger grease, and reduce triboluminescence
caused by tweezer manipulation.
Makers of Huggies, Kimberly-Clark, told her the sparks were caused by a rare build-up of energy called triboluminescence
