Can em waves that traverse solid materials, change to become em waves that get absorb
 
Can em waves that traverse solid materials, change to become em waves that get absorbed by electrons, if the material is heated up, or cooled to freezing temperatures.
Heating, and freezing a solid material the em waves traverse through, does have an effect on how electrons absorb em waves.
How, and in what way I am unsure.
But as em waves like radio waves pass through a material, if the material suddenly was heated, or cooled, so that the em waves change to become em waves that absorb, the electrons in the material would move to higher shell levels, to the same shell/energy levels that are in glass.
Then MAYBE, the material could it become translucent a bit by 2%.
Remember the em waves were INSIDE the material as the em changed to em waves that absorbed.
This is all theory, but its just a idea.
I am grateful for your help, anything helps even a few words.
