Recently, I read the Stern-Gerlach experiment
and I have a question about the source
use free electrons beam instead of Ag atoms beam
is the screen still two lines (electron spin up & down)?
But the truth is that there is a region(pattern) not two obvious lines on the screen
because the electrons can't be polarized in the S-G equipment
I'm just curious that
how to calculate it to prove there isn't two lines on the screen?
Can any gurus derive it and show me?
there is a information which i found
jstor search "27757542"
(A History of the Question: Can Free Electrons be Polarized?)
but the context doesn't have the derivation@@ (just interpret the history...)
