When materials are deformed and broken, surfaces are formed which may have charge concentrations as well as defects and displaced atoms. The consequences of such departures from non-equilibrium can lead to the emission of particles (electrons, ions, and neutral species) as well as photons (triboluminescence). Collectively, we refer to these emissions as fracto-emission. We present measurements of various components of emission from a variety of materials and show that a number of features of the emission involve the transport of charge.
