Is light composed of strings?

  1. Jan 27, 2007 #1
    I am asking is light as it is related to particles could be (wave/particle theory)
    could be composed of strings.


    Has anyone seen any publications or authors who support this idea?

    Umm well in String theory Yes >.< In string theory every fundamental particle is no longer a point or sphere, but a vibrating string.

    Is there any convergence upon a geometry of these vibrating strings? I've often thought WFHagen's Engergiewirbel could be thought of as string geometry - though I'm not sure he would agree. What I found exciting was that this single force vector (string?) could be used explain pair creation/anilliation, particle geometry, weak and strong NF, and even gravity. I would think the string community would resonate with it. :)
