Ahhh! I see. So the energy of the EM wave must first "become" a photon and then the detector detects it?
There is no conversion. And it does not matter if you call it conversion, transfer or whatever. Nothing like that is happening.I must admit I hesitated to use the word "transfer". I would have rather used he word "convert."
We cannot know, and you can prove that we cannot know because it has no impact on any measurement we can make. You can simply pick your favorite interpretation. You can also start endless discussions, but those tend to be pointless.OK, so would this suggest that we really just don't know yet? Per option #4, we need to figure out a way to actually measure the behavior, gain THAT knowledge, and go from there?
Those times are not well-defined in the same way the position is not well-defined. The wave front cannot propagate faster than the speed of light.What I meant was from the moment that the electron is incident upon a potential barrier and starts to tunnel, to the moment it "appears" on the other side of the barrier. Is that time interval equal to zero, or does it have some finite value? A. Neumaier suggested that it was non-zero but that it was controversial.
