Paper Abstract

Quantum theory does not have a mechanism that explains how Nature implements probabilities. Thus, the main objective of this paper is to present new directions for research into the control of photon localization from probabilistic properties with the expectation of improving photon collection and loss mitigation. It is known that photons are not affected by the presence of electric or magnetic fields. Therefore, an alternative question is, can photon probabilities be controlled? Probability control means vectoring and modulation. Vectoring is the control of the direction of localization, and modulation is the control of the distance to localization. This paper proposes a control mechanism by rethinking the foundations of quantum theory, using (i) a modified Schrödinger wave function [19], (ii) a new structure for particle design [20], (iii) the existence of subspace (x, y, z & no t), (iv) that all particles consists of a disc of the modified Schrödinger or probabilistic wave function, orthogonal to the particle’s motion vector [20] and (v) all other particle properties (e.g. em wave, charge, mass, etc.) are added to this structure [20]. The shape of the new probabilistic wave function is very close to that of the Schrödinger wave function, but it is not integrable, and therefore, not distinguishable without very sensitive experiments. It is proposed the proof of subspace lies in the photon’s electromagnetic wave in a manner consistent (iv) & (v). A Glass Thought Experiment is used to clarify how probabilities are effected and as a result it is proposed that the random distribution of photons across an Airy disc is not due to the photon probability but due to the random behavior of electron shells receiving the photon localization. Finally, it is proposed that probabilities can be controlled by altering the electric and magnetic field densities, and a modified Airy disc experiment is proposed to confirm these findings.
