Answer
Hi Mohammed,

There is little thermal effect on elementary particles. As amass they exist as plasma, the forth state of matter. Thus they are too 'hot' to be influenced by thermal effects due to moving atoms #heat# they are energized by radiation of the correct frequency and radiate light to lose energy.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes
Kevin
