fluorescent material

material which exhibits fluorescence as the result of exposure to optical radiation

NOTE These materials absorb energy from optical radiation in the shorter wavelength regions of the visible spectrum and/or in the ultraviolet region and re-radiate some of this energy at longer wavelengths, producing narrow bands of emission in the visible region.
