presents a free presentation featuring
"A Serious Challenge To Quantum Mechanics"
Sunday, June 12, 2011 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. at theSan Francisco Tech Shop
Independent researcher Eric Reiter returns to review the wave-particle duality paradox in his experiments with both light and matter that defy quantum mechanical prediction.
A photon should go one way or another at a beam splitter, and past experiments have upheld this idea. However when the experiment is done with gamma-rays, the photon model fails. Eric's data shows that gamma-rays are detected past the beam splitter in coincidence at rates substantially surpassing the accepted quantum mechanical chance prediction.
A similar experiment done with alpha-rays (helium nucleus) also shows significant coincidences past the beam splitter in strong defiance of quantum mechanics. The nuclei split like a wave. The kinetic energy of the alpha in use is less than the expected binding energy needed to tear the nucleus apart.
So what is going on? We will review history, theory, and experiment. It looks like loading theory (an accumulation hypothesis long abandoned by "modern" physicists), needs to be reconsidered. Loading theory explains both existing experiments plus the new experiments Eric has devised.
