Paper Abstract

In a previous paper, we have proposed that photons are diffractively evolving classical wave packet as a propagating undulation of the Complex Cosmic Tension Field (C2TF) after the excess energies are released by atomic or molecular dipoles as perturbations of the C2TF. The carrier frequency of the pulse exactly matches the quantum condition ΔEmn = hvmn and the temporal envelope function creates the Lorentzian broadening of the measured spectral lines. In this paper we present both semiclassical and QM theories of emission and compare the QM prescribed natural line width of emitted spectra and the Doppler free laser absorption spectra to further validate our photon model.
