When an electron absorbs a photon, there it accelerates and thus it creates a kink in its electric field. Then, when it falls down to its normal state, it creates another kink. Here are my questions.
Is an electromagnetic wave the "going up" AND "coming down" of the electron? In other words, is an EM wave both of the kinks?
If not, and it is just the kink created when it falls down, doesn't that mean the electron "sends off" another EM wave, because only one kink creates an EM wave?
Thanks in advance.
