Advanced “Super-Planckian” Material Exhibits LED-Like Light When Heated
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)

Since the late 19th century, scientists have understood that, when heated, all materials emit light in a predictable spectrum of wavelengths. Research published this week in Nature Scientific Reports presents a material that emits light when heated that appears to exceed the limits set by that natural law.
