  1. Fluorescence
    visible light is absorbed and visible light is emitted at the same time- the relaxation happens very quickly after excitation
  2. Phosphorescence
    Visible light is absorbed and then a while later is emitted- relaxation occurs after a period of time
  3. Incandescence
    Energy is put in from heat and given off as visible light
  4. Chemiliuminescence
    Energy released during a chemical reaction is absorbed to cause ecitation. Relaxtion produces visible light
  5. Biolouminescence
    Chemiluminescence that occurs in a biological organism
  6. Triboluminescence
    Physical pressure or torque provides energy for excitation. Relaxation produces visible light
