Reinterpretation of Solutions of Maxwell's Equations in Vacuum

Authors: V.A.I.Menon, M.Rajendran, V.P.N.Nampoori

The authors show that the solutions of Maxwell’s equations in vacuum admit electromagnetic waves having oscillations not only in the electromagnetic field but also in spatial displacement which leads to the helical structure of the wave. In the conventional approach the path of the electromagnetic wave is represented by a straight line, and the sinusoidal (non-mechanical) oscillations of the electric and magnetic fields at every point on the straight line constitute the wave. But with the introduction of the spatial amplitude, the straight line path will have to be modified into a helical one. The reason why the existence of such a spatial component of the electromagnetic wave has remained unknown may be due to the fact that it falls outside the limits of accuracy of observation. It is obvious that the existence of the spatial amplitude will warrant the introduction of a new basic field. It has to be examined if this basic field could be identified with the Higgs field.
