No. A photo is a quantum of energy. Freezing a photon would mean removing all of it's energy. If it could be done, it would cease to exist. But that would violate the prineciple of the conservation of energy. Energy can theoretically be converted to matter (this happened in the early stages after the Big Bang), but even then, the energy was not frozen, as matter has more energy still in it.
Where does the photon go if you can stop it?
Photons, when alone, move in a straight line at the speed of light. A photon can also be captured by the electron of an atom, increasing the electron's energy and heat. But the electron keeps orbiting the atom, so it is never frozen.

Can you freeze tinned tomatoes?I did mean once opened, not still in the tin/can. Sometimes I make pasta sauce that uses one and a half tins. It's not nice to waste half a tin of tomatoes, so could they be frozen?

An exchange in a hub's comment section led me to wonder how many people are confused by misinformation about Albert Einstein's famously promoted equation: E=MC2.This equation has nothing to do with conversion of matter...
