Glow sticks are plastic sticks that glow when turned on but do not require electric source or other extra other sources of energy. They are primarily based on the principle of chemiluminescence which were first established in Bell labs and China Naval research labs but the first patent of them were claimed by American Navy. They glow when the glow jewelry‘s two chemicals are mixed together and so they are for single time use only. Someone may ignite the glow sticks arbitrarily but once turned on, they can’t be paused.
These glow supplies are waterproof, shock proof and require no energy sources and also, they do not radiate heat. So they are extremely useful in various cases like night diving, military signaling, aircraft landing and other naval expeditions. They are also used in the mines as they can be used in environments where even a little heat can lead to an explosion. They can also be used to lure fishes and the infra types are used in night vision goggles. Glow sticks are used in dancing and in other parties like Halloween and New Year eve’s parties.
