How does a photon move.If it is a particle and moves in a straight line,what do we mean by its frequency in
No one actually knows since we can't observe a photon without destroying it (i.e. in a photodetector). I'm sure this has been discussed somewhere recently, I'll have a dig around later and see what I can find.How does a photon move.
The frequency is simply the frequency of the EM field oscillations, which determines the properties of light.it is a particle and moves in a straight line,what do we mean by its frequency in
It appears from inference that it travels as a wave, as you will see when you look at the experiments below, but as soon as we try and measure it it appears to behave more like a particle losing whatever state it had, this is decoherence, we cannot really know what it looks like because the act of measurement destroys what we are trying to look at.SO a photon is sometimes a wave and sometimes a particle moving in a STRAIGHT line.Have i got it correctly?
