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…

Vector potential quantization and the photon intrinsic electromagnetic properties: Towards nondestructive photon detection

We employ here the enhancement of the vector potential amplitude quantization at a single photon state. The analysis of the general solution of the vector potential, obtained by resolving Maxwell’s

We present theoretical developments expressing the physical characteristics of a single photon in conformity with the experimental evidence. The quantization of the electromagnetic field vector

Schrödinger wave equation for confinement of photon in a waveguide

In the present work, electromagnetic field confinement in a subwavelength waveguide structure is obtained using concepts of quantum mechanics and uncertainty principle. Semi-macroscopic

Quantized Vector Potential and the Photon Wave-function

The vector potential function α→kλ(r→,t) for a k-mode and λ-polarization photon, with the quantized amplitude α0k(ωk) = ξωk, satisfies the classical wave propagation equation as well as the

The electromagnetic field ground state, a zero-energy vacuum component that issues naturally fromMaxwell’s theory and from the vector potential quantization at a single-photon level, overcomes the



Transformation for the energy flux of the electromagnetic wave

The quantum mechanical model of electromagnetic waves is considered, in which the photon, as a particle, propagates with the speed of light, while the wave function of the photon spreads out with an

Electromagnetic momentum, magnetic model of light and effects of the Aharonov-Bohm type

Abstract. The wave equation for light propagation in slowly moving media, which is analogous to that of quantum effects of the Aharonov-Bohm type, is characterized by the interaction momentum ${\bf

Einstein dynamics without special-relativistic kinematics

The Michelson-Morley result is described empirically by generalized Doppler equations. If the phase of a light wave is not invariant, in agreement with the quantum nature of light,

A local-ether model of propagation of electromagnetic wave

Abstract. It is pointed out that the classical propagation model can be in accord with the Sagnac effect due to earth's rotational and orbital motions in the high-precision GPS (global positioning

Experimental Basis for Special Relativity in the Photon Sector

A search of the literature reveals that none of the five new optical effects predicted by the special theory of relativity have ever been observed to occur in nature. In particular, the speed of

Proposal of Michelson-Morley experiment via single photon interferometer: Interpretation of Michelson-Morley experimental results using de Broglie-Bohm picture

The Michelson-Morley experiment is considered via a single photon interferometer and we propose the interpretation of the Michelson-Morley experimental results using de Broglie-Bohm picture. We point

Quantum preferred frame: Does it really exist?

The idea of the preferred frame as a remedy for difficulties of the relativistic quantum mechanics in description of the non-local quantum phenomena was undertaken by physicists such as J. S. Bell

The foundations of relativity

In a previous paper a stochastic foundation was proposed for microphysics: the nonrelativistic and relativistic domains were shown to be connected with two different approximations of diffusion

Michelson-Morley Experiments Revisited and the Cosmic Background Radiation Preferred Frame

A new information-theoretic physics has given rise to a quantum-foam description of space relative to which absolute motion is meaningful and measurable. In this new physics Michelson interferometers
