We postulate that the energy-momentum relation is modified for very high energy particles to violate Lorentz invariance and the speed of photon is changed from the light velocity c. The violation effect is amplified, in a sensitive way to detection, through the modified kinematical constraints on the conservation of energy and momentum, in the absorption process of γ-rays colliding against photons of longer wavelengths and converting into an electron-positron pair. For γ-rays of energies higher… CONTINUE READING
