Textbook Problem

The coating on the inside of fluorescent light tubes absorbs ultraviolet light and subsequently emits visible light. An inventor claims that he to do the reverse process. Is the inventor's claim possible?

To determine

Whether the process of absorption of UV light and then emission of visible light by fluorescent light can be reversed.

Explanation
