[Mentor's note: Oh crap, I accidentally hit the "Edit" button instead of "Quote" so I ended up editing Denton's original question and replacing it with my reply. Sorry about that... :frown:]

Nuclei do have energy levels analogous to the energy levels of the atomic electrons, but the energies are much larger. Transitions between those energy levels involve emission or absorption of gamma-ray photons.

Does this mean they cannot absorb/emit energies lower than that of gamma?
