Wave theory

This paper will prove that the wave theory of light is invalid.

1. Introduction

Huygens (1690) described the propagation of light using a wave structure formed by an ether yet light propagates in a vacuum that does not contain an ether. Maxwell (1864) stated that light was an electromagnetic wave formed by an ether. Without the ether Maxwell's structure of light does not physically exist yet light propagates in a vacuum that does not contain an ether.

In 1899, the photoelectric effect proved that light formed particle effects. To justify the particle effects of light, Planck (1900) derived a discrete energy equation using Maxwell's structure of light yet Maxwell's structure of light does not physically exist. Einstein (1905) derived an energy quanta equation of light using kinetic gas theory that is used to describe the ether.

Feynman (1940) formed quantum electrodynamics(QED) that is used to describe the particle structure of light. QED uses electromagnetic fields that are based on an ether that does not physically exist. Nambu (1970) formed string theory that is used to describe light yet string theory also uses a medium.

The medium (ether) and electromagnetic fields are part of wave theory; therefore, the wave-particle duality theory of light is a wave theory.

2. Wave-Particle Theory

Huygens describes the propagation of light. Huygens' propagation mechanism uses an ether. The disturbance of the ether forms the wave propagation of light. Vacuum is empty and does not contain an ether yet light propagates in a vacuum which proves that Huygens' propagation mechanism of light is invalid.

Maxwell states that light is not a substance but a process going on in an ether which forms an electromagnetic wave structure of light (Maxwell, vol 2, p. 765). Maxwell's ether does not exist in a vacuum yet light propagates in a vacuum which is proof that Maxwell's structure of light does not physically exist.

The photoelectric effect proves that light forms particle effects. In Planck's black-body paper a discrete energy equation of light is derived to justify the photoelectric particle effect. Planck uses Maxwell's structure of light to form a discrete energy equation of light; however, Maxwell's structure of light does not physically exist.

Einstein's energy quanta equation of light is derived using kinetic gas theory. The constant (N), of Einstein's energy quanta equation, originate form Boltzmann's gas molecule entropy equation. Maxwell states that an ether forms the electromagnetic wave structure of light. Einstein is using kinetic gas theory to describe the ether that forms light yet the ether does not physically exist.

The quantum electrodynamic particle structure of light uses electromagnetic fields that are formed by an ether yet light propagates in a vacuum that does not contain an ether. Electromagnetic fields do not physically exist; consequently, the quantum electrodynamic particle structure of light is invalid.

String theory is used to describe light. String theory uses a wave structure that medium is the string. Light propagates in a vacuum that does not contain a medium. String theory is an inappropriate analogy to describe light since light does not require a medium to propagate.

4. Conclusion

The wave theory of light is based on an ether yet light propagates in a vacuum that does not contain an ether which is proof that the wave theory of light is invalid.

You could not be further from the truth in these posts and your reasoning is invalid.

You take the theory that is 100 years old and say that because Maxwell said that light needs an ether that the wave theory of light is invalid since the ether doesn't exist and that the other mechanisms (QED and string theories) are also invalid. This doesn't mean that the mechanisms are wrong since QED explains the particle structure of light.

If you think the theory is wrong just because of that then you are incorrect. When people let you in on the secret you should listen and believe.

PEACE,
