{PG,1 The present invention is directed to water-in-oil type fuel oil emulsions which are particularly useful in firing boilers in ships, locomotives and industrial power plants. Furthermore, the invention is directed to aqueous particulate slurries dispersed in fuel oil. Specifically, the invention is directed to aqueous/oil slurries of combustible or non-combustible particulate having improved burning characteristics. Of specific interest are stable aqueous/oil slurries of coal dust. These…

The theoretical descriptions of the main varieties of non–classical light and the principal measures of their specifically quantum properties are outlined. The theories of quantum–optical propagation

The Nature of Light and Twentieth Century Experimental Physics

In the popular literature of physics the electromagnetic field isoften treated as though it has an intrinsic particle nature. When thetheory is examined carefully, quantum theory only makes the

Properties of Quantum Waves

In recent times some clarification of the complex issue of dualism is starting to emerge. In the first place, some of its proposed formulations are either in trouble or completely ruled out when

Single-photon emitters in two-dimensional hexagonal boron nitride: properties, preparations, and applications

Single-photon emitters (SPEs) are key to quantum computation and quantum communication, which have been demonstrated in various two-dimensional (2D) materials. In particular, atomic defects in

Classical and Quantum Theories of Radiation

Quantum theory developed from the study of the interaction of light and matter. Around the beginning of this century, experimental physicists reported phenomena that demonstrated the inadequacy of

Foundation experiments in quantum atom optics with ultracold metastable helium

The field of atom optics has progressed rapidly over the past 20 years since the realisation of Bose-Einstein condensation, such that the wave behaviour of atomic gases is now routinely demonstrated.

Electron interferometry in integer quantum Hall edge channels

We consider the electronic analog of the Hong–Ou–Mandel (HOM) interferometer from quantum optics. In this realistic condensed matter device, single electrons are injected and travel along opposite

Observation of Nonclassical Correlations in Biphotons Generated from an Ensemble of Pure Two-Level Atoms.

We report the experimental verification of nonclassical correlations for an unfiltered spontaneous four-wave mixing process in an ensemble of cold two-level atoms, confirming theoretical predictions

An Understanding of the Particle-Like Property of Light and Charge

In an analysis of experiments famous for particle models of light and charge, a non-classical wave model is developed to explain these particle-like properties in terms of waves. The experiments and

Induced Superfluorescence and the Nature of the Wave-Particle Duality

It is now possible in practice to observe macroscopic fluctuations in the time domain initiated by an isolated single spontaneous atomic emission of light. This is the socalled “superfluorescence



The Bohr-Sommerfeld Theory and the Uncertainty Principle

It is suggested that, if the Wilson-Sommerfeld quantization postulate is modified such that phase integrals for nonignorable coordinates are placed equal to half-integers times Planck's constant

Contradictions with the Neoclassical Theory of Radiation in Weakly Excited Multilevel Systems

The neoclassical or semiclassical theory (NCT) of the radiative decay of an isolated atom predicts that the decay rate of an excited state is proportional to the atoms's population in the state to

Time Delay Statistics of Photoelectric Emissions: An Experimental Test of Classical Radiation Theory

For many years the photoelectric effect has been taken to provide evidence for the quantum nature of electromagnetic radiation. However, as has been pointed out from time to time[1–3], if the

XXXIV. An experimental study of the quantum nature of X-rays

Abstract A study has been made of the X-rays symmetrically diffracted by the (130) and (10) planes of NaCl. The object of the study was to determine whether or not X-rays are diffracted in both

Theory of photoelectric detection of light fluctuations

The basic formulae governing the fluctuations of counts registered by photoelectric detectors in an optical field are derived. The treatment, which has its origin in Purcell's explanation of the

An Experimental Test of Schrödinger's Theory

ACCORDING to Schrödinger's theory, the intensity of an expectral line in emission is not determined by the number of atoms in the higher level and the coefficient of expontaneous emission, but by the

Quantum Theory of Interference Effects in the Mixing of Light from Phase-Independent Sources

Correlations in space and time of the light intensity from extended sources, observed by Brown and Twiss and by Forrester, were analyzed by these authors primarily in terms of field oscillations.

Coherence Properties of Optical Fields

This article presents a review of coherence properties of electromagnetic fields and their measurements, with special emphasis on the optical region of the spectrum. Analyses based on both the

Experimental Limitations to the Validity of Semiclassical Radiation Theories

Recently there has been speculation that quantization of the electromagnetic field is unnecessary. In support of this viewpoint, a large number of effects — long thought to require such a
