comment Is photon emission possible without electrons changing energy levels?
Anna, again the bremstrahlung effect is related to charged particles, particularly electrons, my question is what about changing in vibrational and rotational molecular energies...

Thx for your answer! You mean the electrons don't change energy levels, just the molecule as a whole, and that causes the emission of a photon? And what about the question about reflection and scattering? The reflected/refracted radiation consists of the same photon that was incident? How do you conceive the process?
