From my understanding of fluorescence, a "fluorescent yellow material" (like in highlighters) is a material that contains yellow dyes and fluorescent dyes absorbing green to give yellow. Then, the material appears "more yellow" than usual objects because it has two sources of yellow.
If the above is right, it appears possible to create a "fluorescent white material" simply by having :
- three base colors (blue green red)
- three fluorescent dyes with their corresponding quantities to counter absorption from other dyes (2blue 2green 1red)
Does it exist ? Or am I making a mistake there ?
- The source is supposed to be sun light
- "white" is seen from the observer point of view, I don't mean all the visible spectrum, just 3 colors are enough.
