Is there any way that science can simulate an energy drop that an electron would give? So that a spectroscope would think it's seeing a particular element, when in fact it is simply a synthesized energy transmission? Maybe taking some free electrons and somehow getting them to absorb and emit at a specific energy level? Though I'm not sure how would be done since they are not bound by anything; but just wondering. Also, along those same lines, is it possible to force an electron to a shell which is between orbital shells?
