Resolution of Kantor and Babcock-Bergman Emission Theory Anomalies

  title={Resolution of Kantor and Babcock-Bergman Emission Theory Anomalies},
  author={Peter A Jackson and John S. Minkowski},
  journal={arXiv: General Physics},
Kantor's 1962 interferometer result supporting the emission theory of light was tested by Babcock and Bergman in 1964 but with rotating glass plates placed in a vacuum. The results falsified the theory that light passing out of the glass continued at greater than c in the lab frame, but the anomalies were not resolved. We review these anomalies as well as related and poorly understood effects including kinetic reverse refraction and non-linear optics. We also consider advances in science and… Expand

Quasi-classical Entanglement, Superposition and Bell Inequalities.
'Quantum state reduction' (QSR) has no classical logic, and the Einstein-Podolski-Rosen (EPR) paradox remains unresolved. Many assume no classical explanation is possible. John Bell disagreed despiteExpand
The Optical Breakdown Density Limit Gamma Giving the Lorentz Transformation Mechanism
The maximum possible density of conjugate ionized pairs produced by photo-ionization is defined as the optical breakdown (OB) density, which may be considered in terms of minimum wavelength (l) asExpand
Twin Planetary Inertial Reference Frames; an Orbiting ECI frame and Inner Rotating ECRF.
We propose that the persistent anomalies of Earth's inertial frame with respect to transitions from the barycentric frame and Laser Lunar ranging findings are due to over simplification. Applying theExpand
Photon superluminal flow in the de Laval nozzle
We determine the velocity of the photon outflow from the blackbody in the de Laval nozzle. Derivation is based on the Saint-Venant-Wantzel equation for the thermodynamic of the blackbody photon gasExpand


Evidence Against Emission Theories
The Ritz theory of electromagnetism and optics is criticized in relation to the experimental evidence after the introduction of a simple and natural modification of the hypothesis concerning theExpand
The Second Postulate of Relativity
In a recent article by Lewis and Tolman [1] a non-analytical method I was developed for obtaining the more important conclusions which can be drawn from the principle of relativity. Our reasoning wasExpand
Determination of the Constancy of the Speed of Light
Kantor’s relativity experiment has been repeated with approximately four times the sensitivity. The experiment measures the speed of light which has passed through moving glass plates by theExpand
Plasmon-assisted transmission of entangled photons
This work investigates the effects of nanostructured metal optical elements on the properties of entangled photons and addresses the question of whether the entanglement survives such a conversion process, demonstrating that the surface plasmons have a true quantum nature. Expand
Equivalence of the Ewald-Oseen extinction theorem as a nonlocal boundary-value problem with Maxwell’s equations and boundary conditions*
It has been shown in the past that the Ewald-Oseen extinction theorem can be generalized into a nonlocal boundary-value problem and that the scattering of an electromagnetic wave on a medium ofExpand
The Ewald-Oseen Extinction Theorem in the Light of Huygens' Principle
The Ewald-Oseen extinction theorem states, that, inside a linear medium, the incident electromagnetic wave is extinguished by its interference with a part of the irradiation from the excited surfaceExpand
Is the Speed of Light Independent of the Velocity of the Source
Recent observations of regularly pulsating x-ray sources in binary star systems are analyzed in the framework of the "emission" theory of light. Assuming that light emitted by a source moving atExpand
Surface magneto-optic Kerr effect
The surface magneto-optic Kerr effect (SMOKE) has significantly impacted research on magnetic thin films. This is due to its sensitivity, local probing nature, and experimental simplicity. The polarExpand
Electrodynamics of moving media inducing positive and negative refraction
Negative refraction is a phenomenon that has been recently reported with left-handed media (either isotropic or not), photonic crystals, and rotated uniaxial media. In this Brief Report, we identifyExpand
Quantum logic as a dynamic logic
It is concluded that there is no contradiction between classical logic and (the authors' dynamic reinterpretation of) quantum logic, and that the Dynamic-Logical perspective leads to a better and deeper understanding of the “non-classicality” of quantum behavior than any perspective based on static Propositional Logic.
