    Has the use of x-rays for telecommuncations ever been considered? I
    imagine that x-ray photons would have more bandwidth than
    visible-spectrum photons. Other than bandwidth, are there any
    advantages to using x-rays instead of light. One major disadvantage, is
    the fact that x-rays could injure humans and possible some metal
    equipments by knocking electrons off the atoms -- one solution to this
    would be to use a lower rate of x-rays photons per second so that the
    amount of x-ray power* does not reach the danger level.



    P.S. *Power in this case define the amount of photons per second, not
    amount of eV per photon
