Limitations on the possibility of distinct Planck constants

  • M. Baublitz
Note Brevi


Previously published experimental data for the neutron de Broglie wavelength relation, quantized Hall resistance, and Rydberg constant are consistent with conventional quantum mechanics and its unique value for the Planck constant. The experimental data also place stringent requirements on alternatives to quantum theory.
