The radiative cooling of positively charged fullerene and endohedral fullerene fragments of C60, C70, C84, and La@ C82 has been measured in a time-of-flight mass spectrometer. The radiative cooling is measured via its influence on the metastable decay. The emissivity extracted from the data is between 4× 10-4 and 13× 10-4. These values agree fairly well with the emissivity calculated from considering the low-energy tail of the surface plasmon. No major difference is found in the emission behavior of empty and endohedral fullerenes.
