If photons are part of a magnetic field like electrons, which electrons can be read with an amp meter, what can measure or count photons? Electrons are not counted but the magnetic field changes when more current flows and the ammeter reads a change in the magnetic field. What type of light are photons? I've seen some of the folks in here talking about creating photons? Energy can not be created nor destroyed, so are the photons redirected, collected, trapped, or redistributed, with a magnetic field? Like measuring amperage, how do I measure photons? RF? What would happen if you took an x-ray of a magnetic field? I am trying to come up with ways to make electric motors more efficient and to devise a way to read current flow by measuring photons instead of amperage. Ohms law doesn't incorporate photons. There is a lot of new information about power generation. It's not just an emf exciting electrons causing a chain reaction in a conductor, it's also photons, but how does a photon travel thru a solid?
