The light which makes the plants grow and which gives us warmth has the double characteristics of waves and particles, and is found to exist ultimately of photons. Having carried the analysis of the universe as far as we are able, there thus remains the proton, the electron, and the photon—these three. And, one is tempted to add, the greatest of these is the photon, for it is the life of the atom. 
of Physics ( 2019 ) 14 : 0007 49 Using the Schrödinger Equation for a Boson to Relate the Wave-like Qualities and Quantized Particle-like Quantities of the Binary Photon in Euclidean Space and Newtonian Time
The photon is an enigmatic entity that is often described in terms of its wave-particle duality. I demystify the wave-particle duality in the model of a binary photon by claiming that the fundamental
of Physics ( 2018 ) 13 : 0022 128 A Description of the Electromagnetic Fields of a Binary Photon
The mechanical properties of a binary photon can be described by transverse and longitudinal wave functions that give the positions and velocities of the semiphotons that make up a binary photon. The

A REINTERPRETATION OF STIMULATED EMISSION AS SPONTANEOUS EMISSION UNDER NON THERMODYNAMIC EQUILIBRIUM CONDITIONS
In 1916, Einstein postulated the existence of induc e emission ( einstrahlung), where a quantum of radiation from a light beam induced a molecule in an excited state to emit a quantum of radiation of

Wie muss unser heutiges mentales Modell des Photons aussehen
Kapitel 9 fragt:Wie muss unser heutiges mentales Modell von Photonen aussehen? Naiv-materialistische Projektil- oder Teilcheninterpretationen des Lichts verteidigten nicht nur Isaac Newton und seine
The Intrinsic and Contingent Properties of the Binary Photon: The Equivalence of Color, Intrinsic Wavelength, and Intrinsic Frequency in Dielectric Media
The wavelength of light is thought to shorten as light goes from a rarer medium (air or vacuum) to a denser medium (water or glass) and to lengthen as light goes from a denser medium to a rarer

Light as a fundamental particle
We take it pretty much for granted that the whole visible world of matter and radiation can be explained, if not in fact at least in principle, in terms of the interactions of a handful of so‐called
The Conservation of Photons
WHATEVER view is held regarding the nature of light, it must. now be admitted that the process whereby an atom loses radiant energy, and another near or distant atom receives the same energy, is
The Radiation of Light
ONE of the lessons which the history of science teaches us is surely this, that we must not too soon be satisfied with what we have achieved. The way of scientific progress is not a straight one
THE STRUCTURE OF LIGHT
In this talk I briefly explain the concept of the structure function of a photon (the best known boson). Then I review some of the current experimental evidence which confirms the existence of
A Quantum Theory of Colour Vision
TLDR
In a paper on the subject of the Quantum Theory of Vision, issued in the ‘Philosophical Magazine’ (February, 1921), the author dwelt on the view that the sensation of light is in every case stimulated by the action of photo-electrons set free in the retina, which is the all-sufficient origin of colour sensations.
Thinking of the photon as a quantum‐mechanical particle
Using simple arguments we show that a photon, when considered as a quantum‐mechanical particle, may be thought of as being attracted to, or repelled from, an atom. A ’’photon Schrodinger equation’’
Evolution of the modern photon
The term ‘‘photon’’ represents at least four distinct models and carries different connotations for students and for practicing physicists. This reflects the long and complex historical evolution of
