electroluminescence
Nonthermal conversion of electrical energy into light. Note 1: Electroluminescence is distinguished from incandescence, which is a thermal process. Note 2: One example of electroluminescence is the photon emission resulting from electron-hole recombination in a pn junction, as in a light-emitting diode (LED).
