Maxwell’s equations do not show how an em wave spreads out. The inverse sq law spread is only valid for point source spherical waves. Maxwell’s equations are equally valid for plane waves, which do not spread out. Photon equations in qft use Maxwell’s equations

Quote from: flummoxed on 28/04/2019 14:33:17Are you viewing the photons in a quantized radio wave as individual photons, or something else? They are individual photons. Not so obvious as the low energy means they are in the thermal noise and you need cooled detectors to find them.

how do you depict the particle STRUCTURE of a Planck's EM photon, Einstein's EM photon, QM photon, QED photon, QFT photon or a string photon.

None of which give a picture of what the quantum fluctuation looks like in space. They just make mathematical predictions based on known/assumed properties derived by measurement. The way the experiment is set up influences what is measured.

Do you know the meaning of the word precedence?

These links give a much better picture of how photons work, than any of the descriptions on this thread.
