A New Look at Light
Light rays exhibit properties which are characteristic of waves and particles. This dualistic nature has been a major stumbling block in understanding the real nature of light. As a possible explanation it is proposed that the photon is composed of two centers of electrical energy—one positive, one negative. These charges rotate around each other giving the photon rotational energy E = hv. Movement of the whole photon gives the photon translational energy. A combination of these two energies can explain many of the dualistic properties of light. Some illustrations are given.
