Paper Abstract

Using the new classical spiraling photon model proposed by Hongrui Li, the features of light involving reflection, refraction, polarization, total reflection, evanescent wave, and Goos-Hanchen shift can be clearly elucidated, and the distinct boundary of the evanescent wave can be observed. The evanescent wave is neither exponential decay along z direction nor goes along x direction infinitely. As of now, the explanation of interference and diffraction of light remains unsolved by our spiraling photon model. Herein we use this model to illustrate the diffraction and interference of light, diffraction at a straight edge and the origin of the spiraling force of photons. Moreover, we show new evidences that are contrary to the wave theory of light generated by our experiments. In other words, the incorrectness of Huygens-Fresnel diffraction theory is found. Therefore we believe that the feature of light is not an electromagnetic wave.
