  • Experiment and Theory Removing all that Quantum Photon Wave-particle-Duality Entanglement Nonsense (2017) [Updated 1 year ago]
    by Eric S Reiter   read the paper:

    Definitions of particle and wave in the classical sense, and quantum mechanical sense, are very different. Let us define a classical particle as anything that holds itself together, and understand that a classical wave does not. They are opposite concepts. However, a quantum-particle has those two opposite classical concepts inexplicably mixed together. A quantum-wave can spread across the whole universe, then collapse to a minuscule quantum-particle. A quantum-wave is a non-physical wave of probability that goes everywhere. This kind of probability is not like throwing dice, because dice go somewhere, and that quantum-wave is everywhere. To resolve the problem requires revisiting experiments that are famous for their particle-like interpretation. Here, we show how a new Threshold Model can work for both our wave-like and particle-like experiments. Two sets of experiments have been performed to substantiate our Threshold Model: with light using gamma-rays, and with matter using alpha-rays. They are both beam-split coincidence experiments that reveal a two-for-one effect. It only looks like two-for-one if you are sold on quantum mechanics. We do not obtain something from nothing. The Threshold Model embraces a pre-loaded sub-quantum state, called for in our new experiments.


  • A Challenge To Quantized Absorption by Experiment and Theory (2012) [Updated 7 years ago]
    by Eric S Reiter   read the paper:

    After recognizing dubious assumptions regarding light detectors, a famous beam-split coincidence test of the photon model was performed with gamma-rays instead of visible light. A similar test was performed to split alpha-rays. Both tests are described in detail to justify conclusions. In both tests, coincidence rates greatly exceeded chance, leading to an unquantum effect. This is a strong experimental contradiction to quantum theory and photons. These new results are strong evidence of the long abandoned accumulation hypothesis, also known as the loading theory, and draw attention to assumptions applied to key past experiments that led to quantum mechanics. The history of the loading theory is outlined, including the loading theory of Planck'ssecond theory of 1911. A popular incomplete version of the loading theory that convinced physics students to reject it is exposed. The loading theory is developed by deriving a wavelength equation similar to de Broglie's, from the photoelectric effect equation. The loading theory is applied to the photoelectric effect, Compton effect, and charge quantization, now free of wave-particle duality. It is unlikely that the loading theory can apply to recent claimed success of giant molecule multi-path interference/diffraction, and that claim is quantitatively challenged. All told, the evidence reduces quantized absorption to an illusion, due to quantized emission combined with newly identified properties of the matter-wave.
