Interested on someone furthering information on basic photon structure. Intended for use towards interstellar light decyphering. If any questions, I will gladly answer them.

Million thanks,

Ok, not sure on the nature of your post, but the photon is an elementry structure, so its not made up of anything.

There are no "elementary" particles. We call them so because as of today we don't know their structure yet.

All we know they all are a quantum wavebunch interacting with each other certain way. But one day we may learn about their structure whether it is string(s), or state(s) of vacuum, or space-time topology unit(s), etc.

You can find some info about the hadronic 'structure' of the photon -- eg what distribution of quarks it tends to switch into via second-order interactions -- by googling 'photon structure functions.' Probably not what you wanted, though.

Photon structure

damgo,

Thank you for your reply, I will go googling, see what I find. On probably it is not what I wanted, you never know, one thing may take to another. Again, many thanks.

Sincerely yours,

Photon structure

Alexander,

Thank you for your reply. Is there anyone at the time, that you may know of, that is dealing with investigations on the matter of photon structure, that I may aproach?

Sincerely yours,
