UV dominant optical emission newly detected from radioisotopes and XRF sources
M. A. Padmanabha Rao[tag, Brazilian Journal of Physics, vol. 40, no. 1, March, 2010,

(As excited atoms become free from surrounding unexcited atoms by valence excitation, room temperature atomic spectra of solid radioisotopes and XRF sources became a possibility. It implies existence of temporary atomic state of solids).
