Paper Abstract

This paper offers a "Two-Field" point of view for understanding propagating electromagnetic energy. Nature's parsimony allows us to say, "Light beams consist of two continuous, independent, modulated and rapidly moving E and H fields." At lower intensities the intermittent emission identified by Planck appears. Experiments involving radio fields showed that E fields propagate at slower velocity than H fields. Experiments involving light showed that H fields passing through the atmosphere will probably not be scintillated. Experiments are underway to photograph scenes using the H portion of light. Experiments are underway to reduce blur of an over-exposed diffraction-limited image.
