The crowd I hang around with has always called this "sunburn." Moving a
plant outdoors into the sun does not have to result in leaf drop (or
permanent scarring or death in the case of cacti and other stem
succulents) if you introduce them to ever increasing amounts of sun over
a period of weeks.

Start with dappled shade, after a week or two more sun, etc. Soon
enough you can have them in full sun with no ill effects. Sorry I can't
give you the scientific reason why...
