Hi. I have three questions. I'm not asking anyone to prove it, no debating :), but am merely interested in your interpretation of QM regarding the absorption of photons in the radio wavelength region. Although I'm sure your answer would remain the same regardless of wavelength. Question 1: If an antenna absorbs a photon of energy, then is it true that just one particle such as the electron will adsorb the energy? Of course there's secondary effects where the particle will transferring energy to neighboring particles, but let's ignore that here. Question 2: Does the particle that absorbs a photon suddenly jerk? If so, then I would be interested in how fast you think the energy is absorbed. Question 3: We have a transmitting antenna. The signal is a sine wave, at say 100GHz. The power is at a level such that the amount of emitted energy comes to one photon every 100 wavelengths on average. We have a receiving antenna a few wavelengths away. So assuming the temperature is low enough relative to the signal, and our oscilloscope is capable of seeing the signal, will the signal appear as spikes, but the probability of a spike appearing at any given moment depends on where the signal is at in the sine wave signal? In other words, if we know where the peak of the sine wave would normally be if we were to boost the signal, then I'm assuming that's where the highest probability of a spike/jerk would be, correct? Here are a few notes from Wikipedia on a particle emitting radiation. They say the electron "jerks" when it emits. I didn't see the opposite effect, so I'm assuming that an electron would also jerk when absorbing a photon. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiation_resistance Wikipedia says "Radiation resistance is caused by the radiation reaction of the conduction electrons in the antenna" http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiation_reaction which is redirected to Abraham–Lorentz force which says "In the physics of electromagnetism, the Abraham–Lorentz force (also Lorentz-Abraham force) is the recoil force on an accelerating charged particle caused by the particle emitting electromagnetic radiation. It is also called the radiation reaction force or the self force." and "The force is proportional to the square of the object's charge, times the so-called "jerk" (rate of change of acceleration) that it is experiencing. The force points in the direction of the jerk. For example, in a cyclotron, where the jerk points opposite to the velocity, the radiation reaction is directed opposite to the velocity of the particle, providing a braking action." There's Abraham–Lorentz–Dirac–Langevin equation, which is both fully quantum and relativistic. Thank you very very much! I greatly appreciate it!
