My original question was: Can UV photons be reflected by an electric field? I 
decided to re-phrase this question, based on the question posted previously by 
Lawrence Skaring "Human conductor". I read this inquiry and I'm wondering if 
the effect produced on the lamp mentioned in this inquiry could be reversed. In 
other words, is it possible that previously energized mercury atoms, could 
produce a variable (high freq) electric field? 
Hope this helps, I couldn't find and answer for this in previous questions 
posted in your website.
Thanks a lot
