Euler's Formula is the Key to Unlocking the Secrets of Quantum Physics

Authors: Bichara Sahely
Comments: 4 Pages.

In this short note, the the key to unlocking the secrets of quantum physics will be elucidated by exploring the fundamentals of Schrodinger's wave mechanics approach to describing quantum phenomenon. We will show that de Broglie's wave-particle duality hypothesis which lies at the heart of Schrodinger's wave-function \psi produces a complex wave equation whose mathematical structure can be described by Euler's famous equation e^{i\theta}=cos(\theta)+isin(\theta) which basically describes a helical wave in 3D space. By comparing and contrasting the electromagnetic wave with that of a helical wave which Euler's equation represents, we may have discovered the geometric basis for spin and helicity and antimatter with negative energies that Dirac uncovered in his relativistic reformulation of Schrodinger's equation.

Theory of Electromagnetic Energy Propagation

Authors: Glenn A. Baxter
Comments: 3 Pages.

We describe electromagnetic energy as a follow up to the author’s THE ANTI-NEUTRON MODEL OF THE ATOM. See www.k1man.com/c2 We identify the exact source and reason for “quantum” in quantum mechanics. A radio wave is continuous emissions, while light, X, and gamma are discrete because of the sudden deceleration of the electrons (inside the atom) when quickly stopping and thus generating electromagnetic emissions as electrons change energy states within the atom or inside the nucleus. That would explain a lot! Those "bursts" of electromagnetic energy are the "photon" (Planck/Einstein) bundles of energy, quite different from a mostly continuous (but kind of sudden accelerations/decelerations at the positive and negative peaks) of radio waves. But how do the "photons" interfere with one another? And how do the "photons" diffract? Quite important is the general view of E = MC^2, which the author has disproved as a general law for ALL matter in www.k1man.com/c1 E = MC^2 is/might be approximate for annihilation, as described in www.k1man.com/c2 This new approach will better address the "particle" wave duality quantum mechanics mystery.

Particle Violation Spectroscopy

Authors: Eric S Reiter
Comments: 23 Pages. Available on author's unquantum.net website and at uspto.gov since 2008

A quantum mechanical particle should go one way or the other at a beam splitter. We test this notion using the 5.5 MeV alpha-ray (He++) emitted singly from Americium-241 in spontaneous decay, a thin gold foil beam-splitter, and two surface barrier detectors. Coincident detection should only occur by chance, at an easily calculated rate. However, the method at hand shows coincident pulse rates greatly exceeding chance. In most cases the pulse heights in the two detectors past the beam splitter will add to the full height of an un-split alpha-ray. One might think the alpha was split into components. However, the available kinetic energy is far below the binding energy threshold required to perform such a split in either helium or the gold. We conclude the alpha matter-wave was split like a wave, in violation of quantum mechanics. The degree above chance was found to be a function of the gold alloy.

Two Experiments to Test Bohr’s Complementarity Principle

Authors: Dhananjay P. Mehendale
Comments: 7 pages.

We suggest two possible experiments to verify the mysterious passing of single photon through both the slits simultaneously. The first experiment aims to measure polarization of photons reaching the screen using polarization detectors fixed on the screen on both sides of the midway line made up of locus of points equidistant from both the slits and further using two types of synchronization setups. Again, using the same two types of synchronization setups, we suggest the second experiment which is based on a simple idea, justified by uncertainty principle. We suggest that we can distinguish between photons that have definitely gone through both the slits simultaneously and those other photons that have gone only through any single slit, either through the one on the left side or through the other on the right side, at a time. We fix in the second experiment photon detectors on the screen on both sides of the midway line made up of locus of points equidistant from both the slits. These experiments aim at achieving experimental confirmation for complementarity principle due to N. Bohr.

The Universal Arrow of Time is a Key for the Solution of the Basic Physical Paradoxes

Authors: Oleg Kupervasser
Comments: 128 Pages. Electronic Journal of Theoretical Physics, Volume 10, Issue 29 (July 2013), p. 21

The modern classical statistical physics, thermodynamics, quantum mechanics and gravity theory are developed and well-known theories. The described theories are developed and well studied for a long time. Nevertheless, it contains a number of paradoxes. It forces many scientists to doubt internal consistency of these theories. However, the given paradoxes can be resolved within the frame-work of the existing physics, without introduction of new laws. Further, in the paper we discuss the paradoxes underlying classical statistical physics, thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, and non-quantum and quantum gravities. We suggest the approaches to solution of these paradoxes on basis universal arrow of time. The first one relies on the influence of the external observer (environment), which disrupts the correlations in the system and results in time arrows alignment. The basis of the second one is the limits of self-knowledge of the system in case of the observed system; the external observer and the environment are included in the considered system. We introduce the concepts of observable dynamics, ideal dynamics, and unpredictable dynamics. We contemplate the phenomenon of complex (living) systems from the point of view of these dynamics. Perspectives of practical use of Unpredictable systems for artificial intellect are considered.
