Talking Can any element have the electron energy levels of glass.

I am hoping that electrons in any element have can have energy levels, or shell levels that do not excite photons of light, like in glass, and other transparent materials.
Maybe you could use laser light with a certain intensity to get the electron to the shell level you wanted, the shell level that does not absorb light.
Like how in glass, has electrons that do not absorb light.
Remember the red light, and X-rays, (or any EM that works best to get the electron to the shell level you want) are mixed together as a single wave, or you could send the RED light in bursts, like in timed millisecond bursts.
So while the electron is in the either shell 1, 2, 3, 4, (briefly) so the red light is sent in millisecond bursts while the electron is in the shell levels of 1, 2, 3, 4, and MAYBE the electron will not absorb the red light and transmission will occur, like in glass.
Thus making the object translucent a little bit by 2% or less.
There are so many ways to play around with this, light can be slowed down, intensity of light can be increased,wavelength changed, I think even electrons can be effected by cold temperature, that could help in absorption of light, and transmission.
When the electron is in higher shell levels 1, 2, 3, the eV changes, and red light MAY not have the energy to excite the electron to higher shell levels, then transmission can occur to illuminate a solid object.
Thank you for your help, anything helps even a few words, grateful for anything.
