Below is a great video on How Electroluminescent technology works, as well as a brief history of the technology. Scientists have been working with Electroluminescence for nearly a century, but practical application has only been around for about 30 years now. Within the past decade, we have seen leaps and bounds for the technology and practical applications have been skyrocketing. Over the next 5-10 years, we will start to see even more progress with the technology, as large companies are beginning to work with it. The wide range of applications makes Electroluminescence a viable option for many companies and an exciting time for the technology.
