Recent experiments by others that challenge the loading theory

There are recent experiments that seem to uphold the quantum mechanical interpretation of particles guided by a probability wave. We need to examine them in detail to be sure there is no artifact in those experiments, the same way you might ask if there is an artifact in the Unquantum experiments.

A recent experiment was published in Nature Nanotechnology: Real-time single-molecule imaging of quantum interference.” The fringes are not parallel, and the authors explain this is due to gravity displacing the slower molecules downward. The slower ones would shift the wavelength longer to spread apart the diffraction fringes.

However, the resolution distance at the detection screen is much smaller than the height of the diffraction slits, so there is no velocity resolution to separate these different particle velocities. There is some mysterious problem with this experiment that the authors have not explained. I await their explanation.

Back Cover



There is a famous test of the validity of the photon concept that has been performed in the past. This test closely resembles a simplified definition of the photon as described by Einstein. The definition states that a singly-emitted photon’s worth of energy, an hv, must all go one way or another at a beam splitter (h = Planck’s constant, v = frequency, v is Greek letter nu). Amazingly, I the am the only one to perform this test with gamma-rays. These tests with gamma-rays show that a single emitted “light quanta” can cause coincident detection events beyond a beam splitter at rates that far exceed accidental chance. I show how to defy this defining property of the photon. To defy this principle of the photon is to defy a very strong prediction of quantum mechanics. There are many who have challenged quantum mechanics. My experiments and theory lead to the most serious challenge to quantum mechanics. There is no easy way to convey my message without invoking immediate skepticism. That is why I did the experiment so many different ways, and why my writings describe this test in far greater detail than any similar experiment you will ever find. My finding of coincident detections beyond a beam splitter means that similar tests, performed by others with visible light, are just measuring noise. My test does not split a gamma “photon” into two halfsize detection pulses; it detects two full-size pulses in coincidence. This does not violate energy conservation; it violates the principle of the photon. The obvious explanation is the loading theory, long abandoned and unfairly treated in our textbooks. Light is emitted in a photon’s worth of energy hv, but thereafter the narrow cone of light spreads classically. There are no photons!

The Unquantum Effect
Resolving the Wave-Particle Paradox

Wave-particle duality is the most disturbing problem in the history of physics. It has been a
problem since Einstein’s light quantum hypothesis of 1905. Waves and particles are mutually exclusive
ideas. We had a paradox. A paradox is something that is contradictory, yet seems to be true. A
solution to this problem implies the possibility of a totally understandable world.
This book is a collection of dated chapters with additions and editing. There is repeated material
among some chapters. An Understanding of the Particle-like Property of Light and Charge (2001) is
the most difficult, but may be the most important. It predicts experiments that were later confirmed. A
Serious Challenge to Quantization (2003) shows the search, discovery, and development of the
unquantum effect. It also describes my in depth search for artifact, not described in the other chapters.
The chapter Exposure of Physics Misconceptions contains ample evidence that data and ideas were
distorted to make people think quantum mechanics must be right. Photon Violation Spectroscopy
(2005) describes the perfected experiment, and links the unquantum effect to physical variables to show
how it all makes sense. This chapter repeats material from previous chapters. Particle Violation
Spectroscopy demonstrates the unquantum effect for matter waves.
The Spectroscopy chapters were originally patent applications and are archived at
After several attempts to publish in mainstream scientific journals, I was compelled to develop the
unquantum effect into methods of measurement useful in material science. The arguments from both
sides are on the USPTO PAIR website for history to witness their corruption. For example: I gave
them 20 experiments worth of data, and they essentially told me there was no data. A granted patent
was never necessary. By filing at the USPTO, my work becomes published and dated. Mainstream
journals, including the patent office, are controlled by people invested in photons, and they are not
about to publish something that makes them look bad.
Although the new physics presented here does embrace quantized emission, currently accepted
physics calls for matter and energy to be quantized for both absorption and emission. Here, that
generality has been experimentally defied, justifying the unquantum term. The unquantum effect
shows that absorption can be continuous and does not always occur quantized.
Many have written that there must be something wrong with quantum mechanics. However,
quantum mechanics remained strong because no one came up with an experiment to defy its
predictions. I expose experimental, theoretical and historical distortions that have confused physics for
100 years. In addition to revealing an incredible new physics, this book corrects what seems like the
most profound collective intellectual blunder that ever happened.
Eric S Reiter, April 2012
Special recognition is to Ken Kitlas for technical support, ideas, and equipment loans. Ken first suggested
the beam split experiment should be done with gamma-rays instead of x-rays. Michael Kan helped with many
technical issues. Robert A Wolf provided much assistance and translated the article by Max Planck.

Eric’s SlantBind Book Binding Invention

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Eric’s SlantBind Book Binding Invention

A book with a slanted parallelogram cross section and a single film of clear plastic wrapped around its covers and spine has the advantage of a stronger and more flexible spine than a conventionally shaped paperback book. This advantage is due to a longer glue spine, and its bound pages being exposed to glue at a thin face strip in addition to its page edge. The slant angle is typically acute at 35 degrees from the front cover.

A slantbind book can remain open and flat whereas a conventional paperback needs to be held open. The slanted spine offers a manufacturing advantage because the wedge shaped spine of a glued book block can be fed between spring loaded rollers to apply a clear film around the book to form its book covers. The film may be a heat activated laminating film or a wide tape-like pressure sensitive adhering film. The film helps strengthen the book spine while preserving its flexibility. The invention affords all sheets including graphics for the book covers to be printed from a single low cost printer.

Physics Demonstration was successfully performed at the Maker Faire May 19 & 20, 2007, San Mateo County Fairgrounds.

I demonstrated the gamma split in tandem. A rather large 50% background tested on site was subtracted, but it still surpassed chance by 120 times (I have better shielding in the lab).

Experiment shows gamma-rays are not photons – Discussion

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Experiment shows gamma-rays are not photons – Discussion
Apr 272004

Announcement of new experiment. If you use a low “energy” gamma-ray like 88 keV from Cd109 and let it scatter to two scintillator (NaI-PMT) detectors, like a beam splitter experiment, it will trigger two detectors in coincidence at a rate surpassing chance. These detectors make pulses, and physicists usually explain it with the photon model. But therein lies the paradox: particles cannot source fields that can guide them to a wave pattern, and conversely, a wave function would need to magically collapse to the energy conversion event.

My experiment shows detector pulses are due to the detection mechanism, as a fundamental property of matter, not particles of light. If it was photons and a probability wave, I would read only chance-rate coincidences (the way all other experiments did). I was very careful to only count full height (windowed) pulses and eliminate various confounding factors, as described on my website. The chance coincidence rate at the detectors is easily calculated, and I measure coincidences from two to 200 times the chance rate. It only works when the photoelectric effect efficiency is larger than the Compton effect for the type of detector.

There are very few isotopes that have the low “energy” (giving high PE efficiency)and are also free of other gamma that interfere, explaining why this has not been seen before. There were serious mistakes in previous attempts at this beam-splitter experiment using light and x-rays, and no one even tried it with gamma-rays. Why? Because it was thought to be a fact that gamma-rays were photons. My theory is an enhancement of the loading theory, first proposed by Planck in 1911. By using the wavelength of the group in de Broglie’s equation and realizing e/m, h/m, e/h are the constants, and that e, h, and m are maximums that can thin-out in free space, I can derive the photoelectric effect, Compton effect, spin g factor, black body spectrum, and can picture the inner structure of matter/antimatter.

My PhotoElectric derivation links the PE equation to the deBroglie eq and Balmer’s eq. Einstein’s photoelectric work was more a statement of his particle model than a derivation. To Einstein’s credit he titled it “On a heuristic point of view… .” The loading theory was rejected prematurely, mostly from not accepting the partially loaded state in time calculations, and from not accepting a mechanism for accumulation at arbitrary frequencies (see Compton’s and Millikan’s books). My work represents a serious challenge to quantum mechanics.

I challenge the physical science community to find any crucial mistake in my experiment and to repeat my effect. My web site shows 20 versions of the experiment in detail. Furthermore I do a historical analysis that identifies common misconceptions of famous physics works. My experiment was first on the web May 2002. I have been submitting to publishers, since 5/01.
