In the double slit experiment, Bohmian Mechanics http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/qm-bohm/#2s" the paths of real particles traveling from the two slits to the detector to look like something like this: The above image shows particles travelling in non-straight paths. The diagram below represents the double slit experiment. The two slits are at points A and B. A hypothetical real photon goes through the slit at A and is detected at point Y on the detector screen. Sp is a straight line from A to Y. Represent its length as “s”. Bp is a non-straight line from A to Y. Represent its length as “b”. b > s If the time it takes a photon to leave A and be detected at Y could be measured, and ... If this was found to be: s/c (c is the speed of light) Then would it be reasonable to conclude the following about the hypothetical real photon? Either: The photon has in fact traveled in a straight line from A to Y - rather than in a non-straight line as depicted by Bohminan Mechanics Or: The photon has at some point along its trajectory traveled faster than the speed of light I would appreciate comments and corrections regarding this hypothetical real photon scenario. Thanks.
