Cooper Pairing and Light

  1. Feb 1, 2004 #1
    If Cooper Pairing is two electrons with opposite spin combining such that they lose all mass and charge becoming a "wave" although they are particles, could light (photons) be a similiar combination of electricity and magnetism (eletromagnetic spectrum)? Modern electronics expresses electricity as particles (actually, voltage, affected by capacitive components) and magnetism (again, current, affected by inductive components). Could these wave/particle observations be an affect of the capacitive/inductive makeup of the materials being acted upon by light? Just a thought.
