Smile If you raise the electron to other higher shell states, can light transmission throug

-h a SOLID BLACK opaque object.
So the energy levels of EM waves increase asfrom radio to X-rays, to gamma waves.
If put the electron in the highest shell, or a shell second to the highest, then shine a wavelength of light, that has the lowest wavelength, which is red light.
So you shine this light at the when it is in its higher energy states, could this make electrons in something solid, and black be like glass electrons.
So that these electrons do not get exited by this low wavelegth light, and could light pass through, and transmission through a SOLID BLACK object, and make it become a little transparent like 20% transparent, or more. Could the opacity of a material to one band of EM radiation (light) could be altered by raising the shell level of the electron in the material with another band of EM radiation (X rays)?
By raising the electrons in the atoms to higher energy bands (with the X rays), so that they will no longer be in energy bands amenable to absorption of light wavelengths, the opacity of the material to light waves might be altered.
Could this be done to make light transmission better through a SOLID BLACK object.
To make the object 20% transparent.
Its all about the energy of electrons, not the amount of electrons in a atom, and it does not make a difference if the material is amorphous.
I am studying neuroscience, and am trying to figure out ways to make brain tissue less opaque, if at all possible.
Think of it as looking through murky water, but still being able to see through the water.
Thats what I want to do with the tissue.
Thank you for your help, anything helps, even a few words.

Brainstorming...

I think you are searching in the wrong direction...
Using high energy EM waves (X-Rays) can be damaging to flesh.

Why is NMR or perhaps ultrasound not acceptable?

The ultrasound imaging usually used for imaging internal organs or babies in the womb etc are good enough for those purposes,
but I guess that they do give quite rough images.
However I suggest that this is because they don't need to be any better,
the extra expense required to get a more detailed image is not justified (for that purpose).

I suspect that with a pair (or possibly a triplet) of high quality ultrasound sources and receivers, and some high powered computing,
it would be possible to generate a much more detailed 3D image.
Modern computing speed would probably even enable this image to be constructed in (near) real time.
If you want to "see" and interact with what you are seeing, then this image could be displayed via virtual reality goggles.
Fighter pilots use head-up displays to overlay all sorts of additional information over what they actually see out of the cockpit window.
This sort of video overlay capability is now becoming available in high end video gaming.
Using such equipment you could see the brain with overlaid ultrasound depth.
