In a recent article [1], Mansuripur has claimed that inside the matter, conventional Lorentz Force law should be abandoned in favor of a more general expression of the electromagnetic force density such as the one discovered by A. Einstein and J.Laub in 1908. The main focus of the claim of Mansuripur is based on special theory of relativity. According to [1], Lorentz force law is incompatible with special theory of relativity. In this article, we have focused in favor of Einstein-Laub equations…

Photon momentum transfer in inhomogeneous dielectric mixtures and induced tractor beams

Support for the Minkowski formulation has been obtained by considering photon momentum transfer for a scatterer at a liquid–gas interface. To shed light on the century-old debate regarding the

An investigation into electromagnetic force models: differences in global and local effects demonstrated by selected problems

This study investigates the implications of various electromagnetic force models in macroscopic situations. There is an ongoing academic discussion which model is “correct,” i.e., generally
