A New Discovery of Nature of Light
Dual Nature of Light is the currently accepted description of the nature of Light by scientific community. However the Author proceeds to explain Interference and Diffraction with an alternative approach with the proposal of a "fluid layer" based on the experiments conducted afresh.
This fluid layer is found adhering on all solid and liquid surfaces in normal atmospheric conditions. The fluid state is assumed to be an intermediate state between a gas and a liquid. The fringes are nothing but ripples of density that are formed due to mechanical pressure exerted on this layer as also due to thermal cause.
Interference fringes and Diffraction patterns are explained in terms of absorption, refraction and scattering of photons in the density ripples existing in the fluid layer. Since an alternative explanation for Interference and diffraction pattern is given by means of Particle Nature of Light, Wave Nature of Light can be dispensed with. Hence photons are the only description of light and photons are to be designated by their mass and velocity.
Alternative Explanation by Fluid Layer Concept
- The Author conducted the original experiments relating to Interference and Diffraction afresh with varied samples and concluded that the above phenomena can be explained by Particle nature of Light itself without taking recourse to Wave nature of Light.
- The alternative explanation for Interference patterns and Diffraction fringes is found on the basis of a thin fluid layer of about a half a millimeter thickness found adhereing on all solid and liquid surfaces in normal atmospheric conditions.
- This fluid layer, formed by the ambient gases, is a state between a gas and a liquid. The Interference and Diffraction patterns can be explained in terms of ripple like density changes that take place in the fluid layer or in the combination of fluid layers when different surfaces are brought together.
- These density changes are brought about by exertion of pressure and due to thermal causes as discussed below in the Interference and Diffraction experiments.
