# Spatial and Temporal Wave Functions of Photon

@article{Khokhlov2010SpatialAT, title={Spatial and Temporal Wave Functions of Photon}, author={D. L. Khokhlov}, journal={Applied Physics research}, year={2010}, volume={2}, pages={49} }

The quantum mechanical model of electromagnetic waves is considered. The photon as a particle moves with thespeed of light with respect to the CMB frame. The spatial wave function of the photon is introduced as a waveaccompanying the photon, with an infinite speed of spreading throughout the whole space at some moment oftime. The temporal wave function of the photon emitted (absorbed) by the electron is defined through thetemporal wave function of the electron (virtual photon associated with…
