Relative motion between two contacting surfaces can produce visible light, called triboluminescence. This concentration of diffuse mechanical energy into electromagnetic radiation has previously been observed to extend even to X-ray energies. Here we report that peeling common adhesive tape in a moderate vacuum produces radio and visible emission, along with nanosecond, 100-mW X-ray pulses that are correlated with stick–slip peeling events. For the observed 15-keV peak in X-ray energy, various… 
Mechanisms of x-ray emission from peeling adhesive tape
It has previously been reported that x-rays are emitted when adhesive tape is peeled in a vacuum but no account of the dependence of the x-ray emission on the pressure of the environment has been
The true spectrum of tribo-generated X-rays from peeling tape
X-rays generated through tribological processes differ from those obtained with conventional X-ray tubes in that a substantial portion of the total energy is emitted in pulses of order 10 ns in
The isotropic emission of tribo-generated x-rays from peeling adhesive tape
X-rays generated through tribological processes are emitted in fast bursts (~10 ns) that hinder the correct measurement of the corresponding spectrum. In this work we implement a dosimetry technique
New developments for the investigation of hard X-rays emitted by peeling adhesive tapes.
TLDR
An advanced apparatus for the investigation of emitted X-rays produced by peeling adhesive tape rolls under vacuum conditions with considerable enhancement under the influence of the magnetic field of an NdFeB permanent magnet is realized.

Tribo-induced Near Infrared Light Emission between Metal and Quartz.
TLDR
This research finds the phenomenon that NIR light with a wavelength from 800nm to 1000nm was generated by friction between solid metals and quartz crystal and infer that such light emission arises from the implantation of metal grains into the surface of the quartz.

Properties of the Photon Emission Accompanying the Peeling of a Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive
Abstract During the peeling of pressure-sensitive adhesives, it is well known that visible light is emitted from the region near the detachment zone. This photon emission due to adhesive failure is a
Forces, charges, and light emission during the rupture of adhesive contacts
Pulling forces and light emission have been recorded simultaneously while rupturing the contact between 1∕16in. balls and adhesive tape. The force curve reveals the formation of glue filaments
Picosecond discharges and stick–slip friction at a moving meniscus of mercury on glass
At a meeting of the French Academy in 1700, Bernoulli demonstrated that swirling mercury in an evacuated flask generates light. He emphasized that this ‘barometer light’ “has not been explained since
Imaging the stick-slip peeling of an adhesive tape under a constant load
Using a high speed camera, we study the peeling dynamics of an adhesive tape under a constant load with a special focus on the so-called stick-slip regime of the peeling. It is the first time that
Sonoluminescence: How Bubbles Turn Sound into Light
Sonoluminescence, the transduction of sound into light, is a phenom- enon that pushes fluid mechanics beyond its limit. An initial state with long wave- length and low Mach number, such as is
Observation of nuclear fusion driven by a pyroelectric crystal
TLDR
It is reported that gently heating a pyroelectric crystal in a deuterated atmosphere can generate fusion under desktop conditions and it is anticipated that the system will find application as a simple palm-sized neutron generator.
Dynamics of the peel front and the nature of acoustic emission during peeling of an adhesive tape.
TLDR
It is found that the nature of the peeling front can vary from a smooth to a stuck-peeled configuration depending on the values of dissipation coefficient, inertia of the roller, and mass of the tape.
