Paper Abstract

In this paper we'll introduce a new treatment called photonics -which is based on wave-particle nature of light- to estimate theortically the refractive index of a dense material in microscopic scales. The main result obtained from this research is the prediction of wave- particle unification! In stead of wave- particle Duality nature of light. The starting points in photonics are planck formula, Hamilton principle, Jacobi and Maupertuis' functions. We've successfully estimated microscopic delay parameter "τ", related directly to macroscopic parameter "n": The index of refraction.
