Universality of light-induced discharging for common polymers. a Polymer beads made up from different polymers, poly(tetrafluoroethylene) (PTFE), nylon, poly(oxymethylene) (POM), polypropylene (PP) all discharge in Coumarin 6 (C6) solutions upon illumination with 366 nm UV light (Bead diameter = 1.6 mm, 1 min charging time in 5 × 10−4 M C6). The differences in the discharge times emerge from the different weights (a, inset) and b initial charges of the polymer beads. Source data are provided as a Source Data file
