Lightbulb How much does light penetrate through a solid material in microns.

How much does light penetrate through a solid material in microns.
There more than a million atoms in the width of a human hair, so with...light shining on the hair how many single atoms in a line, would the light traverse through, or maybe the better word to use is scatter through.
The light is getting absorbed by the electron, and emission-ed, but some light is getting through the solid material, but by how much.
Thank you for your help, anything helps even a few words.
