photons and particle interaction
I wonder how the radiation will interact with matter on a hypothetical place where the atoms have no electrons. Will the photons and particles will interact with matter to produce any effects like that on earth.
I dont think there will be any compton effect, photoelctric effect, pair production, ionization etc. Only effect i could think of is nuclear fission or fusion.
Anyone else has any thoughts on this ?

I'm pretty sure that momments after the Big Bang, there were particles without electrons, do to the extremely high amount of energy. Maybe read some books on that, or conduct a query on google.

Some nuclides have excited states. There has been some discussion about Hf-172 being used as an energy source this way.
