1. The photon wave function, an EM wave, has orthogonal electric and magnetic components. I have gathered the impression that the electron wave function has only one. Is this correct?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2. By analogy with EM waves, can the electron's spin rate be identified with the frequency of its wave function?

3. Similarly, can the + and - 1/2 spins be identified with right and left hand circular polarizations of the wave?
