    Is this thing for real? Have you heard of it? :confused:

    Yes, Mk; the Aharonov-Bohm effect is real. As untenable as it seems, charged particles passing through a magnetic vector potential, even though it is a field free region of space, change the phase of their wavefunction. This has been easily demonstrated with superconductors.
