The Photon as a Particle with an Associated Wave An essential feature of de Broglie’s picture of the wave-particle duality consists of regarding the particle and the associated wave as simultaneously existing physically real entities. Relations (70), (111), (118)–(123), (134)–(137), (158), (159), and (170) of the present wavepacket model in the frames K and K 0 are consistent with such a picture, which could be considered as a ‘‘hybrid’’ system of unified wave and particle nature. In the laboratory frame K this electromagnetic field configuration has the total energy hn ¼ mc2.

3. C. The Electric Charge, Angular Momentum, and Longitudinal Field The local electric charge density of the present theory can have either sign. In the photon model, however, the boundary conditions on the electric field cause 48 b. lehnert the total integrated charge to vanish as given by Eq. (141). A way out of the discussed problem earlier of zero net charge of the photon is to assert that the photon is its own antiphoton [5]. The result of Eq. (141) provides an alternative to this. At this point a question arises as to the possibility of having an expression for the angular momentum also in the rest frame K 0 .

Here j is the angle between the normal direction of the vacuum boundary and the wave normals of the incident and reflected waves. Vacuum region (II) is defined by x > 0 and has a refractive index of nII ¼ 1.
