(I think you mean maximum wavelength, minimum frequency?) Since
photons may be emitted for a variety of reasons (like an electron
jumping from one shell to another), the number of possible wave-
lengths should vary greatly. It seems conceivable that infini-
tesimal transitions could take place between nearly-identical
states in a big atom, releasing super-low energy photons of
gigantic wavelength, low frequency.
