MIT researches have designed a way for plants to emit light. The leaves are infused with nanoparticles by immersion in an enzyme rich solution and a high pressure treatment spreads the particles throughout the plants’ surfaces. These plants then glow and act as a light source for several hours. New capacitor particles have been developed which prolong the effects by storing excess light energy. These findings have potential to create sustainable light sources which don’t rely on batteries or electricity.
