PhysicsOverflow is a next-generation academic platform for physicists and astronomers, including a community peer review system and a postgraduate-level discussion forum analogous to MathOverflow.

Welcome to PhysicsOverflow! PhysicsOverflow is an open platform for community peer review and graduate-level Physics discussion.

Please help promote PhysicsOverflow ads elsewhere if you like it.


PO is now at the Physics Department of Bielefeld University!

  Photons follow the quantum theory

+ 0 like - 4 dislike

It seams that Photons follow the quantum theory and are quanta. Also the sun is a black hole and captures matter. Could light quanta be holes like in semiconductor theory and pulling to the sun not pushing out? This way they would be massless and could travel at the speed of light and interact with matter like a particle.
