10 September 2009 A non-quantum mechanical explanation of the single photon double slit experiment
Author Affiliations +
Double slit experiments with true single photons are presently becoming reality. Thus one may speculate that the wave particle duality of light and photons can now be proven unequivocally. This was not the case with earlier experiments using attenuated multi-atom light sources. Here it is suggested that the few available experiments which indeed are using single photons can be explained in a comprehensible manner without invoking quantum mechanics and wave particle dualism. However, one has to give up the notion of an indivisible photon.
