Aharonov-bohm Problem for Spin-1


The basic AB problem is to determine how an unshielded tube of magnetic flux Φ affects arbitrarily long-wavelength charged particles impinging on it. For spin-1 at almost all Φ the particles do not penetrate the tube, so the interaction essentially is periodic in Φ (AB effect). Below-threshold bound states move freely only along the tube axis, and… (More)
