Quantum Gravity and String Theory


Attempting a Wave-Particle Duality of Gravitational Waves

Authors: Noah MacKay

Gravitational wave detection raised the question regarding the existence of the graviton: the quanta of the gravitational interaction. In approaching a gravitational wave-particle duality, the Klein-Gordon Equation from Einstein’s linearized field equations was used to derive a quantum wave function of the graviton. It is assumed that gravitons do not transition into higher dimensions while emitted as gravitational waves, do not affect unbent spacetime, and have a non-zero mass of value m_g = 1.37E−58 kg [Abbott et al].
