Abstract

A phenomenological theory of infra-red sensitive phosphors is given which assumes the existence of two types of luminescent centers in order to account for the so-called “inertia” effects in the rise of brightness. The equations describing the electron transfer processes have been integrated and show under certain conditions a very rapid initial rise in brightness followed by a relatively slow attainment of the maximum. The effect of varying the intensity of the stimulating infra-red radiation is discussed.
