On the observability of the fieldB(3): Relativistic effects in magneto-optics

  • M. W. Evans
Article

Abstract

It is shown that the novel vacuum fieldB(3) is an experimental observable, and several methods of observation are suggested: these include the pulsed microwave magnetization of a plasma, the optical Aharonov-Bohm effect, and the microwave frequency optical Faraday effect. The effect ofB(3) is presented in the form of relativistically corrected semi-classical theory.
