IN a paper under this title which has recently appeared,1 we have described and discussed observations which have led us to the conclusion that the light quantum possesses an intrinsic spin equal to one Bohr unit of angular momentum. In the four weeks-which have elapsed since that paper was put into print, the experimental technique has been much improved in the direction of attaining greater precision. It appears desirable forthwith to report our newer results, which confirm the conclusion… Expand
E Infinity, the Zero Set, Absolute Space and the Photon Spin
As defined and used in General Relativity calculations, spacetime is a strictly classical construct which does not incorporate in any way, shape or form the concept of quantum. While reviewing theExpand
Fermi-Dirac statistics
After a brief exposition of the history of the Fermi-Dirac statistics, we show how this statistics emerges as a possible statistics for a quantum description of an assembly of identical andExpand
Observing wave/particle duality of light using topological charge
Wave particle duality, also called complementarity, is deeply rooted in the heart of quantum theory. It is fully exemplified in the famous Wheeler's delayed choice experiment where the choice of theExpand
New Quantum Theory
Quantum Theory with Wave Particle Duality is unable to explain how the phenomena of refraction, interference&diffraction, actually occurs and why 'the waves behave as particles' or 'the particlesExpand
Coherent two photon excitation within an extended cloud of Rubidium 85 for the purposes of atomic interferometryand cooling
Cold atom samples, at temperatures of the order 100 uK, are useful for a wide reaching array of new and exciting technological and scientific endeavours. Atoms are conventionally cooled by DopplerExpand
Fundamental Way of Charge Formation and Relation between Gravitational Field and Electromagnetic Field
A complex motion and complex momentum due to relativistic phenomenon has been deduced in this paper. This procedure leads to explain the generation of a field which is the result of energy momentumExpand

About a century ago, in the spirit of ancient atomism, the quantum of light was renamed the photon to suggest that it is the fundamental element of everything. Since the photon carries energy in itsExpand

About a century ago, in the spirit of ancient atomism, the quantum of light was renamed the photon to suggest its primacy as the fundamental element of everything. Since the photon carries energy inExpand
Relating the Physical Structure and Properties of Quantum Space-time to Elementary Particles, Gravity, and Relativistic Phenomena
Modern theory states that matter and energy in their most basic form exist in discrete amounts, or quanta. The author proffers that space-time also exists as discrete quanta, and derives a physicalExpand
Group theoretical derivation of consistent massless particle theories
Current theories of massless free particle assume unitary space inversion and antiunitary time reversal operators. In so doing robust classes of possible theories are discarded. In the present workExpand
