    Interesting idea about extremely high-frequency light being absorbed by nucleons:

    A new generation of antenna engineering?
    Could nuclear antennae be used for extremely high bandwidth communication?

    I seriously doubt that. Certainly not over long distances, and it would seem impractical because of the energy required.
