Superluminal Helical ChargedSheet Models for the Electron and Photon
Abstract
Quantum waveparticle models of the electron and photon are proposed which are composed of sheets of charge moving faster than light and having closed (electron) and open (photon) helical paths. The photon model consists of two consecutive connected sheets of charge +e and e whose helical angle is found to be 45 degrees and charge velocity 1.414 c for any wavelength. The model is set to have the energy, momentum and spin of a photon. The electron model at rest consists of a selfintersecting toroidal circulating sheet of charge e. The electron model's maximum radius is 1.207 hbar/mc with a maximum charge velocity here of 2.797 c. The model is set to have the mass, energy, charge, spin and first order (g=2) magnetic moment of an electron. Its closed helical charge flow paths have 720degree rotational symmetry and may generate the deBroglie wavelength of a moving electron through internal selfinterference. The electron model predicts two distinct varieties of the electron (also of the positron), with symmetrical current flows and magnetic fields. The photon model predicts two varieties of rightpolarized (and also leftpolarized) photons.
