Badly behaving photons again
I wrote about two years ago about strange halving of the unit of angular momentum for photons. The article had title Badly behaving photons and space-time as 4-surface). Now I encountered a popular article (see this) telling about this strange halving of photon angular momentum unit two years after writing the above comments. I found nothing new but my immediate reaction was that the finding could be seen as a direct proof for h_{eff}=nh_{0} hierarchy, where h_{0} is the minimal value of Planck constants, which need not be ordinary Planck constant h as I have often assumed in previous writings. Various arguments indeed support for h=6h_{0}. This hypothesis would explain the strange findings about hydrogen atom having what Mills calls hydrino states having larger binding energy than normal hydrogen atom (see this): the increase of the binding energy would follow from the proportionality of the binding energy to 1/h_{eff}^{2}. For n_{0}=6→ n<6 the binding energy is scale up as (n/6)^{2}. The values of n=1,2,3 dividing n are preferred. Second argument supporting h=6h_{0} comes from the model for the color vision (see this). What is the interpretation of the ordinary photon angular momentum for n=n_{0}= 6? Quantization for angular momentum as multiples of hbar_{0} reads as l= l_{0}hbar_{0}= (l_{0}/6)hbar, l_{0}=1,2... so that fractional angular momenta are possible. l_{0}=6 gives the ordinary quantization for which the wave function has same value for all 6 sheets of the covering. l_{0}=3 gives the claimed half-quantization. See the chapter Quantum Criticality and dark matter or the article Badly behaving photons and space-time as 4-surface. |
