exited in the electron. Can you tell me what would be the outcome of this light experiment. So you mix X-rays with red light, the X-rays excite the electron to a higher shell level 2, or 3. Then the red light with the shortest wavelength, when it hits the electron as the electron is in shell 2, or 3 would the electron get excited, or not by the red light. The electron is only going to be in shell 2, and 3 for a for a very short time, but maybe the red light does not have the energy to excite the electron while it is in shell 2, and 3. Remember the red light, and X-rays are mixed together as a single wave, or more X-rays hit electrons first, then milliseconds later the red light hits the electron, whatever works best for the light to travel through a opaque SOLID material, kind of like glass. The effect I want to get is to make the electron not absorb light, for light to pass through, and make a object a little bit translucent, by 20%. Similar to glass, how electrons do not get excited by light. Thank you for your help, anything helps even a few words.
