This is tutorial video on How to make a Glow stick in Glow in the Dark style. The materials in this experiment are simple, Epoxy resin, Straw, and some Phosphor Powder.
Phosphor Powder carries property of Phosphorescence, which is a specific type of photoluminescence related to fluorescence. Dont confuse this with Chemiluminescence used in Commercial Glow stick, which depends on energy of chemical reactions.

unitednuclear.com has some great glow powder!!!!!! <br />
Sadly, it don't ship internationally.<br /> Prehaps I will make a tutorial on how to make Glow powder later on.<br />
Oh cool! how do you make it?<br />
Actually just some Phosphor powder being secured in a straw or tube by epoxy, I think this is more eco-frienly as it is reusable!<br />
oh sorry, my bad.<br /> <br /> What meant was: How do you make your own glow powder?<br />
I plan to make the Copper doped Zinc sulfide as Phosphor powder, I would probably make via precipitation of Zinc sulfide in Zn ion and copper complex ion solution. I am doing some testing on it, see if that work.<br />
if you can get it to work, i'll mention your video in my upcoming video on phosphorescence.
Ok, I will try in the coming two weeks.<br />
It would be useful if you could include a few suppliers of the powder - it's not easy to get, but it is vital for the project.<br />
I don't know much about the world supplier, but you can definitly find in in Ebay.<br />
