What are the ways light interacts with matter?
Asked in Cosmology
How do you make dark matter?
Dark Matter is matter which is non-luminous (meaning it does not radiate light as stars do) and interacts gravitationally (meaning it has mass) but may not interact with conventional matter collisionally, meaning it goes through ordinary matter. We do not know what it is nor do we know how to make it.
Does light behave primarily as a wave or as a particle when it interacts with a detector?
-- If the detector is designed to detect wave characteristics, then light exhibits all the characteristics and behavior of a wave when it encounters that detector. -- If the detector is designed to detect particle characteristics, then light exhibits all the characteristics and behavior of a particle when it encounters that detector.

What happens when light meets an object?
How does matter interact with other matter?
What form of matter is light?
It is not a form of matter since it does not take up space. _________ On the other hand, as electromagnetic radiation it has some curious properties that are understood only within Quantum Theory. Light consists of photons which are massless particles [some speculate that they have a very, very tiny amount of mass]. Light appears sometimes to behave like particles, and it appears sometimes to behave like waves. You cannot call it exclusively one or the other; it is something altogether different.
