  Phosphorescence - LoveToKnow 1911
Thus, fluorescence and phosphorescence are included under the same heading, " photoluminescence," being distinguished from each other only by the fact that fluorescent bodies emit their characteristic light only while under the influence of the exciting illumination, while phosphorescent bodies are luminous for an appreciable time after the exciting light is cut off.
Thus the phosphorescent light emitted by calcium sulphide may be orangeyellow, yellow, green or violet, according to the method of preparation and the materials used.
In the females the phosphorescence is probably a sexual lure; in the males its f unction is unknown.

 phosphorescence - Encyclopedia.com
Phosphorescence is distinguished from fluorescence in that it continues even after the radiation causing it has ceased.
Their phosphorescence, however, is not temperature-related, as ordinary phosphorescence is, and some consider it instead to be a type of fluorescence that dies slowy.
Mixed in the cement is a rare earth doped calcium aluminate phosphorescent pigment that produces a long lasting phosphorescence for up to 8 hours in the visible portion of the spectrum after exposure to a radiation source.

  PHOSPHORESCENCE - Online Information article about PHOSPHORESCENCE
Probably the phosphorescence of organisms is due to a similar process acting on the many fats, oils and similar sub-stances found in living cells.
Many of the bacteria of putrefaction are phosphorescent, and the light emitted by dead fish or molluscs or flesh is probably due in every case to the presence of these.
Phosphorescent organs known as photophores are characteristic structures in many of the deep-sea Teleostome fishes, and have been developed in widely different families (Stomiatidae, Scopelidae.

 Mineral Gallery - Pleochroism, Phosphorescence and other light effects
Phosphorescence is the ability of a mineral to glow after the initial activating ultraviolet light is removed.
The reason for the delay is because a certain amount of the electrons are prevented from returning to their lower energy states quickly, at least not as quickly as they were initially energized by the UV light.
Some phosphorescent intensity is very low and actually beyond the capabilities of the human eye to detect.

 Sensitized and Quenched Phosphorescence as a Detection Mode in Capillary Electrophoresis
The potential of sensitized and quenched phosphorescence of biacetyl as an optical detection mode in capillary electrophoresis (CE), complementary to absorption and fluorescence detection, was explored.
The technique is based on the intense phosphorescence emission of biacetyl (present as a constituent of the CE buffer) at room temperature in deoxygenated liquid solutions.
Both phosphorescence modes can be applied at a 0.02 M biacetyl concentration, though in the quenched mode a biacetyl concentration of 0.05 M yields better results.

 Phosphorescence Summary
Most emit a blue-green phosphorescence in a region of the electromagnetic spectrum which is highly visible in deep and dark waters.
Marine phosphorescence is an almost ubiquitous phenomenon in the oceans, it helps marine organisms survive by providing them with a means to search for nutrients and defend themselves against predators.
Phosphorescence is a specific type of photoluminescence, related to fluorescence, however unlike fluorescence, a phosphorescent material does not immediately discharge the radiation it absorbs.

 Phosphorescence - The Science of Spectroscopy
Phosphorescence is a luminescent process similar to fluorescence in that it an emission of light by molecules which cannot relax by vibrational relaxation.
The essential differences between the two techniques are that phosphorescence is a slower process, lasting for milliseconds up to several seconds, rather than for only a few microseconds with fluorescence.
The second essential difference is that phosphorescence requires a change of spin of the electron, from a triplet state to the singlet state before it can relax.

 Erythrosin B Phosphorescence Monitors Molecular Mobility and Dynamic Site Heterogeneity in Amorphous Sucrose ...
The phosphorescence intensity (lifetime), emission energy, and red-edge excitation effect were all sensitive to localized molecular mobility on the microsecond timescale in the glass and to more global modes of mobility activated at the glass transition.
This study illustrates that phosphorescence from erythrosin B is sensitive both to local dipolar relaxations in the glass as well as more global relaxations in the sucrose melt and provides evidence of the value of phosphorescence as a probe of dynamic site heterogeneity as well as overall molecular mobility in amorphous biomaterials.
Phosphorescence spectroscopy is a sensitive, site-specific method that can be used to detect molecular mobility within the local environment of a triplet probe.

The AM-PMDR spectra accurately represent the phosphorescence of CH Hg(II)-tryptophan.
The AM-PMDR spectrum of the perturbed tryptophan is obtained by microwave pumping of the D + E magnetic resonance signal, which can be observed optically only in the presence of a heavy atom perturbation.
The resulting spectrum is broadened and shifted to the blue relative to the corresponding tryptophan phosphorescence spectrum of the uncomplexed enzyme.

 facts about ocean phosphorescence at Red Cedar
“Ocean “phosphorescence”, commonly seen at night when the water is disturbed, is largely due to the dinoflagellates; they occur ubiquitously in the oceans as planktonic forms, responding to mechanical stimulation when the water is disturbed by emitting brief bright light.
Phosphorescent bays (e.g., in Puerto Rico, Jamaica) are persistent blooms of this type.
Since dinoflagellates are stimulated to emit light when predators (e.g., crustaceans) are active, predators on the crustaceans might thereby be alerted to feed on crustaceans, resulting in a reduced predation on dinoflagellates generally.

 FAQ
Thus, phosphorescence is usually emitted over periods of microseconds to seconds compared to nanoseconds for fluorescence.
Thus, phosphorescence is normally a very inefficient process in solution and is usually only important for molecules that have some sort of protection against quenching processes.
'Phosphorescence' tends to be used to describe any long-lived emission, for example the glow emitted by phosphorus as it oxidises in air (this is actually chemiluminescence).
