However, Perkins  has shown that a neutral photon in the usual sense can be obtained without Bose—Einstein commutation relations. Normalizing in the usual manner, .
Note that,. The formulas in Eq. The main evidence indicating that photons are bosons comes from the Blackbody radiation experiments which are in agreement with Planck's distribution. Perkins  calculated the photon distribution for Blackbody radiation using the second quantization method,  but with a composite photon. The transition probability for emission of a photon is enhanced when n p photons are present,. The absorption is enhanced less since the second of 15 is used,.
Thus, the equilibrium between emission and absorption requires that,. Combining the last two equations results in,. Experimental results show that only left-handed neutrinos and right-handed antineutrinos exist. Three sets of neutrinos have been observed,   one that is connected with electrons, one with muons, and one with tau leptons.
To form a photon, which satisfies parity and charge conjugation, two sets of two-component neutrinos i. Perkins see Sec. VI of Ref. With this scheme the pion and muon decay modes are:. There is convincing evidence that neutrinos have mass. In experiments at the SuperKamiokande researchers  have discovered neutrino oscillations in which one flavor of neutrino changed into another. This means that neutrinos have non-zero mass. Since massless neutrinos are needed to form a massless photon, a composite photon is not possible.

There is a pretty strong suggestion of a wiggle in KamLAND's observation of electron neutrinos from reactors, but it's not definitive yet. This error, if confirmed, would imply an even more startling result than the one announced in September: that the neutrinos were travelling even faster than suspected and that the sixty billionths of a second anomaly was an understatement. BlockHeaders: s. OutboundGroupCount key! A magnetic field would push on an electron and a positron with exactly the same force: For example, if the electron were pushed right, the positron would be pushed left.
