Photons travel at the speed of 3 x 108m/s and nothing in the universe can't cross this limit. So, photons also can not be accelerated.

No photons cannot be accelarated as they are already traveling at the speed of light.

Synchrotron radiation is produced in a synchrotron accelerator. As the particles are accelerated into curved paths, they radiate X-ray photons.

Input Phosphor. The x-ray image intensifier converts the transmitted x rays into a brightened, visible light image. Within an image intensifier, the input phosphor converts the x-ray photons to light photons, which are then converted to photoelectrons within the photocathode. The electrons are accelerated and focused by a series of electrodes striking the output phosphor, which converts the accelerated electrons into light photons that may be captured by various imaging devices.

The electrons when switch to next higher orbit they need energy to do it they do it by using energy of photons when the photons have equal energy to that required by electron theY absorb it,similarly when the are spelled out the yield out of uranium then they are accelerated to such speed that they emit their energy in showing a spectrum.

Photons do not come in different types like infared-photons etc. they are just the wavelength that the photons are at and nuclear fusion just happens to emit photons at a particular wavelength

Photons are absorbed by ozone. These photons are of UV.

Photons are pieces of light. If you see a light, then there are photons.

Photons are considered elementary particles without rest mass. photons have NO MASS

No, photons do not have weight. Photons are particles, made pure out of energy, which travel at the speed of sound.

Yes, photons are massless.

Yes. Photons are what light consists of.

Photons are electrically neutral.

Yes. Example: I accelerated forward. "I" is the subject, "accelerated" is the verb, and "forward" is the adverb.

They accelerated the project.The car accelerated too fast around the bend.The chemical reaction was accelerated when more acid was added.

Photons are in action units joule-seconds.

Since photons are particles of light and we see by receiving and interpreting light, without photons we couldn't see.

Generally, photons are very easy to detect. Your eyes do a good job of detecting photons within a certain frequency band, as photons constitute light and other electromagnetic radiation. Individual photons are impossible to detect with modern technology.

Accelerated. You've spelt it right.

Photons. Lots and lots of photons. ;)

When they're incident on glass, infrared photons do the same things that photons of otherwavelengths do ... some are reflected, some are absorbed, and some are transmitted.How many of the photons undergo each process depends on the energy of the photonsand the chemical composition of the glass.

Maybe there are more Green Photons than Blue Photons to overcome the Blue Photon energy advantage.
