Title: Why does light slow in water?
Post by: mad aetherist on 26/02/2019 13:24:18
Fermilab Why does light slow down in water? 20 Feb 2019.   Another horrid faux-theory from Fermilab. 
As usual the science mafia resort to using waves to help explain why light slows in water etc, & re why light bends at interfaces. Their explanation of the slowing effect of electrons near the path is partly correct.
As is usual their pseudo-explanation doesnt work for a single photon, ie their explanation doesnt work.
And their explanation doesnt explain why there is so little scatter at interfaces even tho interfaces are very rough at the molecular level.

The only good theory out there is my own photaeno-drag theory.
Photaenos are little tornadic swirls of the aether that emanate from the main helical body of every photon.  The swirls (photaenos) compete with other swirls for the use of the aether.  Photaenos also emanate from other free photons & from confined photons (proper particles)(electrons quarks etc).  The aether cannot multitask very well hencely there is congestion, in vacuum near mass, but especially inside mass (eg air water glass).  The congestion slows the progress & propagation of the photaenos.  This slowing feeds back to the helix of the central body, slowing the photon's propagation. 
For higher frequency photons the helix of the main body is tighter & some photaenos angle somewhat more ahead (photaenos emanate kind of squarely from the helix)(the photaenos at the front of the helix do the most damage here), hencely high frequencies are slowed moreso.
Photaenos try to propagate outwards from the helix of the central body of the photon at praps 5c according to some Xs.

Photaenos make what we call em waves & fields & radiation, that propagate out to praps infinity -- em waves & fields & radiation have nothing to do with photons (except that a photaeno is a part of a photon). Actually i doubt that photaenos can form photaeno waves, but they can form photonic waves (see below).

Also photaenos are sticky, which is an aspect of being allergic to congestion, & not only does it give slowing but it means that these little tornadic suckers just love parades.  Which explains waves & coherence & lasers. 

Anyhow photaenos give a photon in effect a large width & height, ie a large diameter.  Hencely all photons passing throo a slit are affected (slowed)(refracted) by the nearby atoms , the nearer then the greater the slowing.  The slowing on the nearside of the photon is greater than the slowing on the far side, hencely a (gradual) bend in the trajectory (ie a refraction).

Photaenos are slowed by other photaenos.  The photaenos emanating from a photon are slowed by photaenos emanating from all elementary particles (electrons & quarks etc).  And the particle doing the slowing does not have to have charge (ie protons & neutrons etc slow light).  All mass slows photaenos, & nearby light (photons) slows photaenos. And if photaenos are slowed then the parent photon is slowed, moreso on one side at an interface, hencely refraction.  And whilst most of the bending is at the interface, some of the bending must happen on the approach & on the departure (near the interface).
