For me, fun is taking a program, language, whatever and making it do things it's designer never envisioned it doing. It comes in handy when I'm asked to do something a little outside the norm as part of my job.

What are the bounds on the validity of that model? Does that still apply in the RF ranges? IIRC absorption at optical wavelengths is an interaction with single electrons whereas with RF wavelengths it's dealing with conduction inside conductive materials.

comment What is the minimum wavelength of electromagnetic radiation?
@HelderVelez, good point: Close only counts in Horseshoes, Hand Grenades, and Tactical Nuclear Weapons. (OTOH that last one has an interesting relevance here.)

I specifically left unspecified how the photon is generated and even what matter source is used to power the experiment. The only things I specified is the total amount of energy dumped into it.

@Georg, the question isn't about creating the photon. OTOH, it's interesting to consider how you could do that (or how you could pump an exiting photon to that high an energy level).

Note that with regards to point 1, The energy density I'm referring to is not that cause by relativistic speeds (if a photon had such, it would be infinitely heavy) but rather just the energy of the photon it's self. For example, what would happen if a single photon was emitted using the total matter/energy conversion of an entire super massive black hole (or an equivalent mass)?
