c19f04 Figure 19.4 ( a) Schematic representation of the mechanism of photon absorption for metallic materials in which an electron is excited into a higher-energy unoccupied state. The change in energy of the electron E is equal to the energy of the photon. ( b) Reemission of a photon of light by the direct transition of an electron from a high to a low energy state.

4 Electron transition emits a photon. Reflectivity = I R /I o is between 0.90 and 0.95. Reflected light is same frequency as incident. Metals appear reflective (shiny)!
