Lorentz contraction of the frequency of electromagnetic waves (EMWs) during refractionAuthor(s): Abdelkrim Alileche
The design of computers running not on moving electrons but on EMWs needs a serious review of our knowledge and theories about the behavior of EMWs upon refraction. The fact light can be slowed to 17 ms-1 is a serious challenge to Einstein special relativity, a theory based on the constant speed of light for all inertial frames. This study brings a new version of the Lorentz factor this time applied to only moving EMWs in condensed medium. For the first time quantum mechanics and special relativity are together in a new formulation of Planck energy law E=hν.
