Chemical Light Product Research and Development

  • Michael M. Rauhut


Chemiluminescence research was initiated in the Author’s laboratory in 1961 with the objective of developing efficient chemical lighting systems for use in practical lighting applications. The preliminary phase of the program consisted of market research, feasibility analysis and selection of an optimum research approach.
