Fluorescent powders have a Lycopodium base and were developed specifically to be luminescence-excited by relatively monochromatic light sources emitting blue-green light.
They all work very well with argon ion, copper vapour and Nd:YAG lasers, and they can also be used successfully with simple ultraviolet lamps.
It is recommended that a feather duster be used to apply these powders. The feather duster applies the powder in a thinner, more controlled layer than other types of applicators.
The special cohesive-buffer effect of the Lycopodium carrier tends to “flow” the powder over the hills and valleys of the textured surfaces that would otherwise be “painted” with conventional powders.
Each colour of powder fluoresces at slightly different wavelengths to provide two options when dealing with problem background florescence.
Similar to Red fluorescent powder, Green is a bright green fluorescent powder.
It can be used instead of Red fluorescent powder when a background surface colour is interfering with the red fluorescing colour. It is especially sensitive to ultraviolet light sources.
